Is Magnatec's add pack similar to GTX Ultraclean? #4584734

I saw in an old post (UOA of Magnatec) that Blackstone mentioned that the Magnatec the OP was using was similar to GTX (obviously minus the special clinging molecules). Is that true?
Does anyone know about this? I'd like to use a full syn because of winter cold but really like the way GTX is running right now.

Here's that UOA post: https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3839330/Castrol_Magnatec_5-30,_7100mil

And here's a VOA of GTX Ultraclean. https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthr..._VO#Post4507347

Thanks!

The magnatec does not have the higher levels of moly and boron that the gtx does. However, I doubt you will be disappointed with the magnatec. I would go with it for the winter instead of gtx.
