I don't really like the sandwich adapters because they cause the stock filter to sit even lower, and since I use the longer filter this could really cause a problem with ground clearance. I don't want it to get hit.

    Also, what is your opinion of the Amsoil bypass system vs. the Perma Cool remote filter system?
    Here...mebbe I screwed up..... I have this http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerc...86&prmenbr=361
    Goes from here to the dual oil filters..then from there to the Oil cooler....sorry for any... confusion....I have two filters.....works like a champ....

    Oil Additives: Good or Bad?

    Question for everbody:
    Do any of you use an oil additive? If so, what?

    Give us some details, like how often? ...how much (quatity, cost)? Why?

    And for an even livlier discussion, If you don't use one, why? C'mon, we need feedback... we're oil junkies! Give us your opinions, good, bad or whatever. Just stick to oil stuff...we've got to have more!

    Any special recipes, procedures (like, after you changed oil, if you had to put the additive in with the engine warmed up, or had to drive it immediately for some time, etc.)?

    Few things I have learned are real in the additive world....the rest is pretty much snake oil. But good post and question!
    1. Lube Control maintains the TBN in any oil...
    2.FP60 (Fuel Protector) works!
    Instead of me typing out all the advantages of both the above...here is the link... http://www.lubecontrol.com/lube.htm
    3. Valvoline Syn Power Oil Treatment....this stuff is the real deal...you can add a few oz's to any oil for improved lubrication and protection. If you want to run Dino oil...adding a bottle of this stuff greatly narrows the gap between Dino and full blown Synthetics.....great stuff with no residual side effects like many "additives"... http://www.valvoline.com/pages/produ...asp?product=21
    4. Royal Purple Royal Ice...not about oil But this stuff dropped the water temps in the GTO by 20-30 degrees......all by itself.....it works......

    As previously posted in this thread, I add Valvoline Syn Power oil treatment & Auto-Rx to every oil used in my cars. Sarge's post before this one explains the benefits of the Valvoline & I use the Auto-Rx to keep everything clean. Have done an original Auto-Rx cleanning & flush in all of my cars & a maintenance does keeps them that way. Mix is approximately 6 qts. oil, 6 oz. Valvoline, 3oz. Auto-Rx. or 1 oz. per qt. of the Valvoline & 1/2 oz. per quart of Auto-Rx.

    How often = Usually twice per year unless I've been high reving @ the track.

    Quality is A-1

    Cost = ? don't know as it's a not a cost issue. However, there is savings in taking care of the engine.

    Yeah! Nice stash!

    Regarding cost, if someone uses an additive, what did it cost? Some of the stuff out there is pretty pricy. That way, if we see someone wasting a bunch of money on a gimmick marketing additive, we can inform them of it. Or, if someone wants to try to justify the expense for any one of the "miracle" additives...have at it!

    How many of you use stuff like Slick 50, DuraLube, ZMAX, Restore, etc? C'mon, I know you're out there.

    I have a friend (who is a big Ford guy), who swears by DuraLube. Many times, he suggests I ought to use it. I don't, but do any of you? Why?

    OK, no bites in over 24 hours...

    Lets get the oil related discussion going again. Sarge mentioned earlier (in post #111 on this thread) that Valvoline Syn Power Oil Treatment is "great stuff with no residual side effects like many 'additives'... "

    Sarge (and/or anyone else), please elaborate on these residual side effects for the benefit of those who might not know.

    Not to be rude here -but I did ask the question-Where did the info on Mobil One thinning out from 5W-30 to 5W-20 after 500 miles come from.If you're gonna make a specific claim like that and others there needs to be specific data to back that up.You may not be a salesman for that company but you are selling their products(that makes you a salesman) and maybe biased.Stick with the facts and leave the snake oil sales outa the forum.

    I was referencing deposit/varnish left behind by some of the teflon based additives in my comment......Even Dupont...the maker of teflon does not recommend teflon be put into a gas burning engine.....
    Some good reading on the subject... http://www.skepdic.com/slick50.html

    Do not know where this is coming from as I went back a few pages and could not find your post...... My comment on the Mobil thinning is here

    I will say the UOA that I have done showed the viscosity to be down at the high 20's on my daughters car after 5000 miles....and of course there are many who "post" about it....I only state from personal experience....Blackstone Labs , last I checked is a reputable firm so I have no reason to doubt their findings on my daughters oil....do you?
    I agree so often I read things on the Internet that are no more than regurgitation of something people have read.......I applaud your demand for proof...but am also confused as to who and what specific post you are talking about...
