Just got my UOA in from Blackstone. Sent them Mobil 1 0W-40 with 5,560 miles. Car has 13,466 mile on it.

The shear is quite high which concerns me. My current fill is Liquimoly Leichtlauf. I hope i see better results.

Posted a pic in case anyone is interested.

Contacted Liqui Moly to see what they recommend for the EA888:

What I sent them:

Best VW 502, 503 or 504 oil for my MK7 Golf 1.8 TSI EA888?
Hello, I have a 2016 MK7 Golf with the 1.8t TSI EA888 engine. Service manual recommends I use a 5W-30 oil with VW 502, 503 or 504 approvals. I change the oils every 10,000 miles as recommended per the factory. What Liqui Moly oil do you recommend I look at purchasing? Thank you!
Dear Michael,

thank you for your inquiry and your interest in LIQUI MOLY products.

I recommend you as motor oil for your Golf our LIQUI MOLY Top Tec 4200 SAE 5W-30 part-no. 2004
(1 l).
This modern synthetic oil fulfills the required specification VW 504.00 which exceeds the 502.00 and the 503.00 and is therefore well-suited for you.
The Top Tec 4200 ensures a fast lubrication of the cold engine and provides a stable lubricating film.

Additionally, i recommend you also our LIQUI MOLY Cera Tec part-no. 20002.
By a combination of an synthetic friction modifier and a ceramic solid lubricant prevents the Cera Tec the direct metal-to-metal contact and reduce so the friction and the wear.
Especially modern turbo charged engines benefit from the properties of the Cera Tec.

I send you our product informations in the attachment.

Should you have any further questions, please contact us.

Freundliche Grüße / Best regards

Shearing is usually due to fuel dilution in direct injection engines, which blackstone isn't good at picking up. That being said, its low for a 40wt, but on the higher end of a 30wt, so still within the range the manufacturer recommends (w-30, w-40 for this platform).

It would probably be far more cost effective to just change your oil earlier (6-7k) then buy a non inexpensive oil and change it at 8k. (mobil1 0w-40 is crazy cheap compared to liquid moly).
All tunes and piggybacks can cause clutch slippage on the Manual Mk7 GTI and R. If you do not want to pay for a clutch replacement, do not tune your car.
