    Agreed - I used it a long time ago on a (should I say.. BMW E34?).. did run better. But no proof. Would be good to scope engine. Run this through. Then see difference. I have a scope if someone wants to run the test. :)

    I have not used it, but have heard many, many people swear by it. Including my mechanic neighbor. I’m seriously considering giving it a go.
