You need expert opinion however I'd suggest that some particles are expected if it is the original factory filter, because any new gearbox will surely shed some metal as it runs in.
For sure you should be reducing your maintenance intervals not only because your car is tuned but also because you track it. Didn't the guys at MRC advise this?
The filter and oil is only used for the clutch and hydraulic controls, it's not the oil that the actual gears are in. I guess the clutch is something which is wearing (hopefully slowly!) so maybe it's just from that?
The magnets were fine was his comment on that and we didn't cut open the internal filter when it was replaced.
Lol, Im looking forward to it although the only bit I will probably understand is "Your oil looks good/crap" the rest will probably mean nothing at all to me hahaha.
As a reminder, my engine oil analysis report is here. I shall be interested to see what Millers' is like, especially since it is a lot cheaper.
