There is no substitute for well built components running quality fluids but the theory behind it is good and if it works as stated I can see where it would be very useful. The Jury is still deliberating on this one. I've seen a lot of stuff come and go over the years making big claims and my general conclusion is there is no such thing as "Mechanic In A Can"

i think as long as you use some quality oils and lubricants you should be fine. it boggles my mind when people spend 5 plus grand on a motor and then buy the walmart 99cent oil.

r u sure its valvoline?? me and the guys i used to work with thought it was made by Mobil because all the numbers were so close to each other. BG had a chart/sheet and it was like Mobil 1, Wal-Mart, Valvoline, and on down the line. we couldnt believe it.
