Still seems snake oil to me.


Snake Oil salesman.

LOL me too! And DuraLube, STP, etc. Like slick 50, the old DuraLube (early 90's) did make the engine run quieter. This may or may not affect anything other than sound, but a quiet engine makes me happy! I don't know how much it would help with modern syn oils.

Oh, almost forgot the splitfires...tried them on OPE and a car, but never had anything positive to report. Throttle response was worse than OEM.

SNAKE OIL 4 SURE

Sad thing is that Scotty Kilmer is touting it. I like his videos in general as he's a weird guy...and i dig that about him. He's also very knowledgeable and as someone who owned a shop and wrenched on cars of all kinds for 15 years...ive only disagreed with him twice that I can recall. That has to be some kind of record because I'm very persnickety.

Ive disagreed on the following

1...pushing slick 50 snake oil
2...he likes Ford trucks over GM which I do not. While i own neither nor desire to...my experience between GM and Ford does not mirror his...they are primarily what I worked on.

We both hate Nison, all things Chrysler, CVTs in any application, and various other things that suck
