Well said.validius said:This thread and indeed entire discussion should be used in a psychology class as an example of how large groups of scared people act.
ZDDP is indeed a useful additive however the data points far more toward a combination of poor design and poor metallurgy. Have fun everyone throwing a little bottle of 'peace of mind' into your engine that may as well contain goat piss for all you know.
For some reason you have chosen option 2 of the following:
1. Use the OEM oil and risk having a know, detectable, fixable problem occur.
2. Add an un-certified additive to your oil, not only voiding any existing warranty but also risking this additive having an adverse affect on the millions of dollars of engineering in your oil. In doing so you risk your engine engine.
