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

I spend my $ on Amsoil synthetic!!!

just use castrol GTX, in my opinion the best oil out there!! I have used STP in the oil in our mustang and in my old 2000 celica with no problems.

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.
