I tested liqui moly on a S54 I rebuilt from the ground up. Broke it in, tracked it, monitored with black stone analysis at various times. Oil samples collected properly. Great results. It's a fine oil.

Not sure if it's been mentioned here already but I heard somewhere that it actually has more certs than castrol does. Not sure how that works and if quality/certs of a branded oil can decrease over time. I'm sure irl the difference is negligible

I was actually going to mention your build. Glad it came from you!

Im sure its been done many times on this forum but someone should just post a blackstone lab result with the two side by side and end this "discussion" lol

Im running liquid-moly now, and wont be running it again. I saw my temps on track be higher then Castrol and its enough to push me away

I used it twice and not going to use it again.
ROWE is the best oil I've used, highly recommended if you daily your car.

Just finished my first oil change interval on LM10-60. Blackstone report is the healthiest it's ever been. The biggest thing I have noticed is, in my experience, the 3 previous Castrol fills required 0.5-1qt top-ups in every 7500mi interval, as in, the after ignition-off oil light would come on. The first go of LM, I was still well within the "good" range on the dipstick, and the oil light never materialized. I'm going to continue using this oil and monitoring the blackstone results as usual.
