Dropped the oil 14k on my sp1. Found a piece of metal. Not steel in crankcase. Any ideas what it goes to. No engine noise or concerns at this time.
Thanks.

From what I can see its is aluminum....I hate to say it but I'd pull the pan off to see if there is a piece missing from the lower end of the engine case. (And you could clean the oil pump screen out too.)

Me too. I'm hoping its nothing. Like I said no other metal particles were in oil and cut filter open every oil change looked good.
