apparently its fully synthetic but its magnetic so it clings to the cam gears so they dont get damaged when you dry start the car..

says on the ford uk website that ford recommends this oil for turbo'ed and supercharged cars....

It probably does what it says it does... but isn't this like Slick 50 (and countless knockoffs) except for that it's marketed as an oil rather than an additive?

^^ yes probably....

but I'd buy anything that had an animated drop of oil with the voice of Jeremy Clarkson, so I may be biased.

I run Castrol Magnatec on my Focus, nothing to complain about but the price:P
If I recall right, it set me back with about 200$.
