Default Motorkote - the US product in a TDI?

Greetings US guys,

a quick question - has anyone of you heard or used Motorkote Hyper Lubricant in an internal combustion engine?

I watched this video and it seems that thewear is actually reduced: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88vwUwa3igQ

Since this doesn't look like a snake oil, I am considering to try to use this product in a TDI.

I did some googling and seems that this product is available only in US, unfortunately.

Thoughts? Comments? Feedback?

No, it's more like "it won't do any harm anyway" idea.
Would love to see how this works in a PD motors which suffer premature cam wear though

Kinda like Archoil 9100. BITOG site shows many advising against playing garage chemist. Does it work? Maybe. Does Archoil work? Maybe. Can you also make Meth in your garage? Sure you can. But should you?.....

A 9% mix is 93,750 parts per million. How much is carrier and how much solid particles. likely a mix of nano solid metals of some kind along with a carrier that has an affinity for metal. Surely someone at BITOG has done a oil analysis on this.

Edit, here is an example; https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...1836391600012X

Well, that artice doesn't say it's Motorkote.
It may or may not have different ingridients.
Wonder if there was UOA done for specifically that stuff.

I found a few VOAs/UOAs and they show absolutely nothing. The ingridients must be some other than those tested in a chap UOA test

I envision some guy in a garage filling those little bottles from a drum of Ashland 30W. Also, that guy's testing apparatus/procedure isn't worth squat.

Both guys. The one selling the motorkote snake oil, and the one rubbing rocks together and calling it science.

The reason PD cams have wear issues is because the design is fragile, not because of the lubricating properties of the oil used. Unless Motorkote has little tiny engineers in it that redesign and re-manufacture your engine while you drive, the only thing it will do is make your wallet lighter.

Why would a UOA test for the ingredients of something that doesn't belong in your oil? Imagination probably isn't a tested for ingredient either.

Yet another completely believable endorsement.
