Hot Shot Secret?

Has anyone used this with success. The 05 DT is suffering a loss of power and hard starting, just a few of the symptoms relating to Stiction at IH calls it. If the companies claims are true, then I will be happy to try it out, if everyone says its snake oil, then it is what it is.

As most of you know, I am the first to call snake oil on most things, but this has me wondering since it was supposedly a joint venture with IH.

We tried a bit of it, I was skeptical, but it seems to help if the injectors are just starting to give you a fit. If the injectors are bad enought that they sound like they about to blow a hole through your piston... don't waste your time, it won't "fix" your problem, but can aid in slowing the grenading of your 6.0 injectors!

Well I didn't try HSS, went with REV-X. Was down to 4.4MPG on the 05 IH DT466 and have a bad injector with loss of power.

Filled up the tank and dumped in 12OZ of REV-X in the oil and went to towing cars.

After 600 miles, the truck has more power and the economy came back to 6.6mpg. The injector is still faulting out, but the truck is running better than it has since we bought it.

Its not a fix all, but it has helped with the stiction issue. Before the truck was hard to start in the AM and had very low power until it was to running temp. Now it has power from the moment the key is turned.

Snake oil, maybe. But, it made me a believer!
