most oil additives like slick 50, duralube, prolong, z-max, etc don't work. Save your money.

I spend my $ on Amsoil synthetic!!!

You guys familiar with Amsoil?
Good for 35,000 miles, you just do
Oil Filter changes every 6 months, and
yearly oil changes! I've been doing this
for the past 7 years. My toyota truck has 273,000 miles on the original block and heads.

What about that Polyoron TC-7 stuff. I use that and like it a lot. It cleared up my valve chatter real nicely and made the motor feel more smooth.

I have never found amsoil at a retail store, usually independent people resell it. Hard to find! Last time I purchased some it was 5.25 a quart.
