Anyone try this in there sube. Incase you dont know, its an oil supplement. You replace one quart of oil with this stuff and supposedly adds horse power and torque. Im sure thats prolly a crock of crap but out of curiousity has anyone tried this?

Sounds like a waste of time. Motor oils, both conventional and synthetic, have additives in there to cover viscosity changes, sludge formation, deposit formation, etc.etc. There is no need to add anything else. IMO, anyway...

I definetly agree. I really dont like the idea of having to replace 1 quart with this stuff. seems shady. oh well im just curious if anyone gave it a whirl.

Hilton's HyperLube, the Wonder Drug for your engine.

Seriously, it's the same stuff as STP. A concentrated dose of additives and various polymers. Great way to turn 10W30 into 20W50 or SAE 30 or SAE 50 or whatever, but it's cheaper to just buy the heavier oil outright.

It *will* reduce oil burning, I know, I used it by the quart in my first car (1958 Simca Arondè Elyseè w/Flash 1300 engine). That was a long time ago.

ive had good luck with "restore" for N/A cars, it acutally does raise the compression back up.. i couldnt beleive it myself, so i tried it on a few other cars.. works, but dont put it in a turbo car.. zinc and turbos dont get along... i would think it would kill the bearings..
