brass dust suspended in oil

I'm doing the switch from Valvoline Racing 20-50 to Brad Penn, and noticed a lot of brass dust in the oil. Is this the death knoll?

I'm going to send a sample out to Blackstone Labs, but in the meantime, what else, besides the valve guides, is made of brass? Cam/chain drive gears? Distributor drive? Anything related to the turbo (K27-S) itself like sleeves/bearings?

Also, I don't know if this is related or not, but my motor has always generated a lot of the white milky oil/air combination. I noticed a good deal of it while I was re-routing a couple of the vent hoses over the a/c lines, and an accumulation in the bottom of the oil tank.

Thanks in advance
