i have a friend who has been bragging about how good z max is for the last year. he hasnt been able to find it anywhere for a while, but finally did and has been begging me to try it out on my caddy. its a 90, 4.5L with 145k
im sure you all know what it is, but if you dont im pretty sure its an engine treatment, much like slick 50 and whatnot...but just much more expensive.
anyways, can anybody else testify to the results, or lack of results to using the z max treatment.

Re: z max
Zmax is garbage. Useless snake oil. The same guy that owns Charlotte Motor Speedway...er..ah...Lowes Motor Speedway....started the Zmax additive line to cash in on the marketing success of Slick50, Prolong, etc....all the other snake oils out there. It is just another way to relocate your money to his pocket. Forget it.
If your friend thinks that it works then he is suffering from the placebo effect....and/or he is too embarassed to acknowlege that it doesn't do anything after spending all that money on it...and is trying to get you to bite....misery loves company...LOL.
Face it, if Zmax and the others were that special and really worked the oil companies would have had the stuff in engine oil long ago. It is useless.
Tornado inerts in the air duct do not work either...LOL.

Re: z max
and your friend cant find it anywhere because it has been recalled after the government filed a massive suite against the company because engines were exploding, its basically alcohol and oil
