    gains like that can be factored into an error percentile and some other possibilites. I bet they would have seen the same gains with a fresh oil change.

    Was the engine heatsoaked before etc etc etc? How long was the oil in before? Was it synthetic? Yeah I noticed a bunch of seat of the pants gains when I did a bunch of little stuff from my car. Unfornately It was abused before me(maitenance wise) and I was just freeing up robbed power from abuse.. i regret my first few posts on this site.

    BTW I used that shit in my rear end because nothing else with an additive was availible except it and she whines like my ex gf now..

    just my .02

    i figured there was an explanation but i just thought that was a big difference in #'s between the two pulls. oh and jd i dont think it was heatsoak, the pulls were back to back with the second pull(w/oil stuff) being the better of the two.

    My car has made back to back pulls with that much of a differance. Nothing changed. Coolant temp was within 10 degrees for each pull.
    Not since I put the 402 in, but it does happen.

    PLUS...the dyno operator (if paid by endorsements) can change factors to show a gain.

    oh okay i figured there had to be some catch. I bet the show does get endorsements, i meen imagine how many people (ricers especially) ran out and bought that s**t just cause of that episode.

    That stuff is great it will give you tons of hp by reducing the protection of the berings.

    Not me I rather loose 10 hp and not tear up my berings with some soft oil.

    If they want to sell it to me have ..three hot chicks take a shower in oil.... one in 10 w 30 one in senthetic oil and one in this oil additive.... Then line up three slip and slides on a hill.."no water just a dry rubber slip and slide" can you see where this is going with its ouch...

    Ya I bet Mobil 1 would show a hp gain over my GC cause it's thin as crap. Doesn't mean I want it in my engine.

    They tested the additive in a basic conventional oil.

    Swap out the same oil with 15w-50 mobile one, royal purple synthetic OR Brad Penn conventional and you will see similar gains w/o srewing with the dyno #'s.

    This is due to a change in the additive package made to protect catalytic converters. (zinc and phosphorus.)

    For some reason mobile 1 did not pull the good stuff out of the 15-50.

    The px3 stuff is great if you use an oil that doesn't have this additive package.
