Oil additive that prolongs 6.o engine life?
Have a friend that swears he has had great success with an engine oil additive called "Turbo Maxx"...initially created specifically for the Powerstroke engine (or so the web site explains) and reduces friction better than anything else (Numerous U-tube video's that seem to be bias and "support" this claim).
I've always been very skeptical of these types of products, but I also installed a new 6.0 engine 20,000 miles ago that i would like to see last a long time.
This Forum has proved invaluable to me for the past several years, but can not find anything related to this topic using the search function
I know there are many very intelligent Mechanic & Engineer types on this forum that I'm hoping can shed some light.
Fluid maint is a big key to maintaining the engine - so I have learned from many here, but have to say that I know for a fact his engine oil & coolant temp went down about 5 degrees each a couple days after he added the product ( Ive seen the difference on his scan gauge from where the engine used to run)...Engine idles quieter as well.
I wouldn't even entertain posing these questions, but the results from my friends 6.0 has me conflicted - Is it possible this stuff actually works as described?
And before I pull the trigger on trying it myself, can anyone clarify if this type of product could have any sort of adverse reaction to the motor? (FYI - Not sure it would make any difference, I also have the Amsoil dual bypass filter)
Appreciate any input!
