Exclamation Power from a bottle? (not noss)

Yea I was watching Speed vision and some sport compact show came on something evloution. Ne ways they did this test on a new product called EXP4 additives. its like poop you put in ur gas and oil and or tranny fluid every time u change the stuff. But apparently it adds power etc. So they dyno'd a truck then put the EXP poop in then took it for a 10 mile drive they then dyno'd it again and apparently it gave it a 9hp gain to the wheels.

I wouldnt believe it but I mean its on speed vision so id test it out to see what it does. the web site is http://www.exp4additives.com. So ne ways check this poop out im gunna call around to see where I can get it. If it works like they say it does ill be :D

The show you watched was Sports Car Revolution. It is possible for this stuff to work but I think having to put it in everytime you do all that stuff would get to be a pain after awhile. Almost kinda reminds me of the Horsepower Octane Booster and stuff you buy at Autozone.

Nine out of ten Foci experience power increases of up to 653HP by sending a check for $1000.00 to me.
That makes about as much sense as those "info" commercials.

At least I will kiss you before i screw you.
save your money or... send it to me

I bet they switched over to synthetic fluids. I remember watching Horsepower TV once when they put synthetic motor oil, tranny fluid, and differential fluid and got a decent gain. I'm not sure the cost of the synthetic tranny fluid or differential fluid, but those should be changed every 30,000-50,000.

As to why ChrisL911 puts injector cleaner in every oil change, why not? I would hope everybody changes their oil at regular intervals. I will now be changing my oil every 5000 miles, it's easier to add a bottle every oil change instead of trying to remember the last time you added a bottle of injector cleaner.

Ha... infomercials...... for some reason tornado comes to mind.

The only thing I know that works, but cost money. They actually cut grooves into the combustion chamber so the cumbustion actually rolls around and spins with the air flow. Cannot recall whats the process is called, when I am not being lazy I will do some searching.

It's a synthetic type oil. Synthetic oil will cause less friction resulting in less powertrain loss = more hp to the wheels.
