    Engine Restore

    Has anybody ever tried this stuff? Does it actually work like it says it does?
    Its a formula that you put in your oil and its suppose to restore the cylinder walls and loss compression. My car has about 101K on it and I figured it couldn't hurt to try this stuff. But I wanted to hear what you guys know about it first.

    think it is similar to Rislone only more exspensive. Hopefully Sarge will respond to this thread for you. He seems to know alot about engine oils and additives.

    But as my limited knowlage about it I would think that it couldn't replace cylinder walls only lubricate and release stuck rings therefore restoring compression which will intern restore engine power.

    I knew a guy who used that Rislone Engine Restore.

    Ended up spending $3800 on a new motor. That stuff is good for specific purposes, but not a band aide for a tired worn out motor.

    Reminds me of thet "slick" Slick 50 crap...

    I personally use the best practice...preventive maintenance.

    Spark plug check/replacement at 75k
    rear end juice same time, fuel filter at 15k
    BP 93 octane
    Mobil 1 oil filter and Castrol synthetic every 4k
    K&N air filter
    Clean MAF and sensors 3 times a year

    Car has 128k, burns NO oil and still runs 12.9 at the track with only SLP exhaust.

    I have used it before on several non-lsx motors and it did very well. Restored power on all of the motors I have put it in. But the motors I put it in where higher mileage with greater tolerances then any lsx motor. Lsx motors have very tight tolerances that real thick additives can't get in creating a "dry" spot on the bearing surface. That is my .02 cents.

    you guys are making me nervous.... I used an oil additive last oil change "auto-rx". Don't know the difference between this stuff and the additive i used... I decided to use it after reading a thread where sarge suggested it. I have 72000 miles and the previous owner didn't maintence worth a shit so i figured it couldn't hurt.

    Glad I asked first. I thought it looked to be a good and promising idea. Keep the info coming.

    I use Lucas upper cylinder lube every other fill up on the LS1 since 60k (128k now)

    Use it on the 68 Firebird 400 with 112k mi.

    Not an oil additive, but same principle. I am sure there are thousands of oil filter, oil, oil additive and fuel additive combinations that have worked well for each of us over the years.

    I am anal and adhere to a schedule..have a 92 4.3 Chevy with 620k and burns no oil. Replaced 2 O2 sensors and a TPS sensor in 95 and that was all. Just keep up on the maintenance and all will be well..

    Unless you have a problem you are trying to fix, I vote no. I have over 176k on my 98 and I still don't leak or burn any oil, just regular maintenance.
