Turbomaxx vs archoil??

So I was watching some YouTube the other night and ran across a recommended video in which oil analysis reports were compared between archoil and turbomaxx, but after watching the videos this turbomaxx guy sketches me out a bit... can anyone tell me what experiences they have had with EITHER of these products, not looking for an additive battle— looking for personal experiences in 7.3 powerstrokes. Thanks guys!

Re: Turbomaxx vs archoil??

my experience is stay away from snake oils.
i have never had any issues at all with any of my diesels, and have accumulated well over 2 million miles over the past 35 years on my 9 diesel pickup trucks.
i used valvoline all fleet 15-40 in all my trucks, and never added anything to the oil.
the two diesel trucks i have left have 495,000 miles on the 88 IDI with turbo, and 198,000 on the 02 powerstroke

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.

Re: Turbomaxx vs archoil??

In a 7.3, you don't really "need" anything on the oil side.
I've ran hot shots secret and it did seem to smooth out some.
OTOH, it did nothing in my 6.0 lol

I don't have a 7.3, but Hot Shot Secrets has been a great additive.
