Is this additive recommended? Is it potentially harmful to 4cyl turbo engines? I have a 100K+ mile dodge 2.5L 4 cyl engine and I was wondering if it would work in it?

I personally would stay away from it.

It is snake oil. :)
The only good additive is no additive.
Just good clean oil and filter ever so often.

If I recall the commerical correctly, its suposed to not only restore, but balance compression. Last can of the stuff I opened to put in a lawnmower was thicker than gearlube.

The reason for that is.
The thicker it is the bigger the snake they used to make it out of. :)
But if it rattles or has diamond spots in it do not let it bite you.

I actually used this once. It was very thick, and did no good. I don't think it caused any harm, but it was a waste of money. I see no way it can do what it claims.
