Kendall synthetic with liquid titanium!!!

I was at my friend's auto shop yesterday and came upon a shop magazine that i started to look at to check out the latest automotive service information. In it, i found an ad from Kendall synthetic motor oil that states that they are now adding liquid titanium to improve engine performance and longevity. They state that the liquid titanium adheres to the metal, especially in the valvetrain for better protection. I've never heard of using liquid titanium as an oil additive before but it's worth looking into it.

I don't know anything about this oil and this is the first I've heard of it, but it sound a lot like the ol' Slick 50 story revisited. I'd would be very suspect but Kendall will probably sell a boatload of it anyway. Slick 50 was a hot item until it was found to be worthless and actually detrimental to one's engine.

I won't ever add something that claims to "stick" to internals. Titanium is a metal...no thanks. Haven't we learned anything from that whole Slick50 scam?

Yes, it does bring back memories about Slick 50 from back in the 1980's. I'm currently using Amsoil Series 3000 5W-30 HD oil and don't plan on using anything else. I've been using Amsoil lubricants for quite awhile and don't have any problems with them whatsoever. It just so happens that i ran into this information and thought about all those oil additives that companies have used in the past claiming all sort of things.

I'd stick to what's been working for you. I use Mobil1 and you're using Amsoil....top notch oils that have been time proven. They always have a way of making things sound wonderful, so much so that you'd be willing to try it. And maybe it is ok, I'm just very picky and question everything. This attitude has treated me well over the years..lol
