    I received a email the other day about additives from Amsoil. I will need to find it. Most but not all are safe to use. Seems they give off a Sulfuric acid or something. I will look for it. Seems like Lucas was one of the ones that did. Now flame away till I cum back now.

    I've used Slick 50, Prolong, Motor-up, Duralube, Sea Foam, and probably a few others.

    ALL snake oil IMO.

    Prolong and Duralube are essentially glorified paraffin wax.
    I poured some Prolong into a BBC a while back, and within a week, the cam lobes disintegrated because the lifters stopped turning.

    If those products did anything at all, manufacturers would require them.

    In fact, the only motors I HAVE had problems with, were ones that had that crap in them.

    I put Mobil 1 in everything I have with a motor in it.

    Zero problems.

    Oh, and the AmsOil lie about a 20,000 mile oil change makes me laugh.....gimme a break.

    For what it's worth, 2 friends of mine have Olds 455 jets.
    They use Rotella exclusively, and have for years.
    15 years with no problems at all in both boats.

    I change my oil every 2 trips to the lake.
    Best insurance I can think of....

    coolness, i just bought this boat last week and want to keep this motor strong. It only has 8 hrs on the rebuild. I did a compression test last night and it came out GREAT! 175 on the high and 170 on the low. everything else was right in between

    If you are like me, and running a fairly mild engine and pump gas, you might try a bottle of double strength 104 octane boost. The stuff you get at Kragen, etc.

    1 bottle to 30 gallons of 91 pump gas changed the entire sound of my engine(460), and made it run a LOT better.
    The only shelf additive that I have noticed a difference with.

    up here in Boise you can get 93 octane at a few stations and 94 in a couple others. But i'll give the 104 a try
