At 29k. Have run redline 5w40 from 5k-24k miles, redline 5w30/10/40 mix for last 5k miles.
Here is how it looked at 13k
The left to right streaks are oil smears when wiping it off. The center portion lost a tad bit more DLC but thats about it. Cam and pump looked good. My impression is that the initial wear on this follower occured during the first 5k when it was on factory fill and after that wear has been very low. But just an impression because I didn't inspect it at 5k.
