    Complete garbage. The FTC has a lawsuit against the company, its nothing more than tainted mineral oil.

    In the independent tests, it actually created more wear than regular oil by itself.

    Last year i used Z-max in my 98 trans am (no internal engine work just bolt on's) and i thought it worked fine but at the end of the summer my car started knocking and not just a light knocking either really bad, horrable knocking, the kind that makes you go "OH SH!T!!, thats not good" so as my punisment i have to rebiuld my engine (not like i don't want to lol but...). Hey at least now i get to biuld my engine how i want to sort of ( i was going to biuld a LS6 427ci super stroker but not enough money saved for it so i guess i'll have to do with some other mods) but what the hell it gonna be fun either way and i almost have my engine out now so not long till i get her back on the road. CURSE YOU Z-MAX!!! hahaha.

    I had just bought some of this shit when I read Sarge's thread on the 2 cycle oil.
    Now I have Penzoil Platinum and Z-Max in the Vette and feel like changing the oil again.
    Oh well maybe one oil cycle won't hurt.
    I hate to waste the Penzoil

    hate to tell you this, but you already wasted your penzoil by pouring that crap in there. Get it out and put in fresh oil. Z-max is crap. Your better off buying farts in a can and pouring that in your engine.
