Tried getting fellow BRZ/86 enthusiasts to get into Cerma. They're a tough bunch. Y'all are the true believers! Miss you! 😭

Been awhile since I posted an update in here.
I've changed my recommendation for order of treatments.
Do turbo/nano first for ~1500 miles, then the engine treatment after the next oil change. I cleared this with CERMA John several months ago, but he insisted that the engine treatment not be added to turbo/nano-treated oil, so keep them separate.
Why treat with turbo/nano first?
Oil is typically hottest in the bearing locations, where the highest amount of friction occurs. Turbo/nano treats non-ferrous metals, meaning not only turbo bearings but engine bearings as well.
Do the exact same run-in procedure as the engine treatment. Oh, wait, it's not posted here anymore.
You can DM me on Instagram if you want the run-in procedure along with a discount code.
I recently had a new buyer treat with turbo/nano first (following my run-in procedure) and afterward he said the turbo spools quicker and earlier in the rev range by a few hundred RPM.

Posterity bump. Nano in the VN since ~970 miles. Max. boost PSI has gone up from 15 to 16.4 (avg. high 15s), using Pennzoil 5W-30 conventional as the carrier.
AMSOIL SS 0W-20 going in @~1950 miles, along with 0.5 oz. engine treatment. VANOS treatment later in the same load.
