    That reminds me. Bleed your brakes regularly. Difference is night n day. If u go fast, just as important to be able to stop the vehicle

    Yes! Very easy to do especially with a pneumatic bleeder.

    Nah. Just a friction reducer. Going to try it in the trans as well, at the next change.

    I will. Just filled up the gas, prior to adding it in.

    Once I get some more transmission fluid, I'll put it in there as well.

    The main reason that I purchased the Motorkote, was because of the extreme lift of my cams. Wanting to reduce the friction and prevent wear on the lobes.

    After installing the turbo, there has been a slight decrease in power since it isn't forcing air into the engine. No wastegate.

    After the fill of about 16 oz last night, there was a very noticeable difference in engine performance. Maybe the turbo is spinning a little easier, since this fluid helped reduce the friction of the old oil which had been in there for years. (Note that it still spun freely prior to install). If the cams, bearings, and piston rings are moving all with less friction, it is easy to see how the engine has more pep. Again, it was a noticeable improvement, after about ten miles.
