    Coating the cylinder wall with a thick film of mass isnt fixing anything and adds friction to the equation. Number one cause of low compression/blow by is a sludged up ring pack. This inhibits the rings abilities to expand and contract forcing a seal against the cylinder walls. So instead of pouring crap into your engine oil to layer the cylinder walls to compensate why wouldn't you clean the ring packs? This is what you want to raise compression........... http://www.auto-rx.com/index.html
    This is my signature. It is mine. Nobody else has one like it.

    I've used auto-rx on my LS1...great stuff. Make sure you put a new filter on like it says...you'll need it.

    SeaFoam is a solvent and I dont care for solvents on my seals....and no SeaFoam even with the solvents doesnt do near as good job as AutoRx and it's esters based cleaning....
