WHEN YOUR ENGINE IS AT ITS BEST - YOU JUST KNOW

Car lovers have been discovering the performance maximizing benefits of Slick 50® for over 30 years. They know their engine is at its best and love to tell the story. Visit our Facebook page and tell us how You Just Know.

Many claim their product increases performance. At Slick 50 we wanted to prove it in the real world.  Nothing overly technical, no impossible conditions or rhetoric, just a simple before and after.

2012 Subaru Outback
Adding one bottle of Slick 50 Supercharged Synthetic Engine Treatment (15oz.) produced a dyno run that yielded an increase of 10hp.

THE CHASSIS DYNO TESTING

We utilized an all-wheel drive chassis dynamometer. A simple testing machine that provides a controlled environment to generate an apples-to-apples comparison of driving with and without Slick 50 product in as close to identical conditions as you can get. This is the same tool used by race teams to determine how much horsepower their race cars are producing before they go to the track.

 

The subject was a 2012 Subaru Outback that had run *Mobil 1™ 5w-30 synthetic oil exclusively from time it was purchased new. It was a 6 cylinder with 14,000 miles and four oil changes since purchase. A new engine that had only run synthetic oil was the perfect place to really see what Slick 50 Supercharged can do.

THE CONDITIONS

Testing was completed during the mid-morning hours. Weather conditions were overcast with temperatures in the mid-70s.  To keep atmospheric conditions as close as possible for both runs, the baseline (non-Slick 50) runs were taken within an hour of the Slick 50 runs. After the baseline run, we added Slick 50 Supercharged and drove the car on the dyno for 10 minutes at 55-70mph to allow the Slick 50 to blend with the existing oil.

THE RESULTS

The baseline runs yielded 206hp as measured at the wheels, on the top end. Factory specs list the 2012 Outback 6cyl as measuring 256hp at the crank (engine.) This equates to a 20-25% loss in power through the driveline, which is right at the accepted calculation percentage for all-wheel drive loss.

Adding one bottle of Slick 50 Supercharged Synthetic Engine Treatment (15oz.) produced a run that yielded 214hp, an increase of 10hp to the engine.  Using the accepted loss calculation we can assume that, at the wheel, that is a gain of 8hp.

2013 Ford Mustang
Adding one bottle of Slick 50 Supercharged Synthetic Engine Treatment (15oz.) produced a dyno run that yielded an increase of 10hp.

THE CHASSIS DYNO TESTING

Our second subject was a 2013 Ford Mustang. This rear-wheel drive, V6, coupe had just over 11,000 miles on the odometer.  The horsepower rating at the crank for this car was 305, and as most cars are these days, the engine is mated to an automatic transmission.

We again utilized an all-wheel drive chassis dynamometer. A simple testing machine that provides a controlled environment to generate an apples-to-apples comparison of driving with and without Slick 50 product in as close to identical conditions as you can get. This is the same tool used by race teams to determine how much horsepower their race cars are producing before they go to the track.

Prior to the testing, the oil was changed using factory recommended *Motorcraft® 5w-20 Synthetic Blend motor oil. 

THE CONDITIONS

Conditions were mild with temperatures in the low-80’s and the dyno test procedure was kept identical to our first test with the Subaru. The baseline and Slick 50 runs were performed within an hour of each other and the car was given a 10 minute, steady, “highway dyno run” once the Slick 50 Supercharged product was introduced, to allow for proper seat-in.

THE RESULTS

The baseline run pulled 228hp at the wheels out of the 3.7 liter Ford Mustang power-plant. With the baseline runs complete, one bottle of Slick 50 Supercharged (15 oz) was added to the engine, seated on the dyno, and followed by a cool-down period.

Then the Mustang was put through the paces again, generating a total of 236hp at the wheels as registered by the dyno. Following the standard drivetrain loss formula we are again looking at a 10hp gain at the engine crank and a bump of 8hp at the wheels just by adding Slick 50 Supercharged Synthetic Engine Treatment.

 

We’re two for two. Considering the amount of money some people will spend to add 10hp to their engine, Slick 50 appears to be quite a bargain. This is before you introduce the long term benefits of using Slick 50 Supercharged.
