Again, not a single person on this board criticizing maxilube or EP agents can provide any facts, just stupid sarcasm

I would love some facts. I'm tired of all of these opinions and solicited testimonials.

wannfbody,

The onus (anus?) is on you to show:

- test results with a control - e.g. "it idled for an hour without oil pressure" - how long did the untreated engine idle? What about with some load on a dyno?

- how the stuff is better than just boosting ZDDP in your oil

- why oil manufs don't use it in their oil - after all, competitive pressures will encourage them to formulate the additive package in their oils to result in longer life

IMO, the reason most motor oil manufacturers probably don't use EP additives is likely due to cost. There are probably antiwear agents that do a fairly good job for less money. Liquid titanium is one additive that a couple major producers are using to offset ZDDP.

Joe Gibbs could buy any commercially available oil for his race cars and yet he decided to formulate his own oil most likely with his own custom blend of antiwear agents.

The onus isn't on me to prove anything. If you want proof the product works call the manufacturer and ask for any test data that might be relevant. If you don't get the data you ask for then don't use the product. It's that simple.

Compare the current SN levels of ZDDP at 800ppm or so to race oils with over 2000+ppm. Obviously that's a big difference.

Is there any testing that shows 2 similar engines (2 LS1s, 2 BPs, etc.) run next to each other? One with the miracle additive, one without?
