Teflon additives

In my old 5ks I tried Duralube. Felt a different for one week. My dad
overheated the motor and cracked the head on it a few weeks later and that
was that for claims of being able to run it without oil and water. On my
5ksT, I had to change the original turbo with a new one. I went through
the summer, babied it, cooled it, etc. The oil smoke started once again.
Put in this stuff I saw a Nat'l Wholesale Liquidators called superlube
(like the spray). 2.97 a quart. 1.97 at Job lot. I must say that I was
surprised. It's cheap enough to add at every oil change. The turbo spools
noticeably faster and smoother. I was worried that I might clog the
filter. Sofar no problems with them. As far as teflon not bonding at under
400 degrees, I think that the bearing temps in a turbo might exceed that.
Forgot to mention that the oil smoking has stopped completely. I haoped
that the stuff will build up around the bearings and seals and it did.
Have to specify that it is SUPER LUBE ENGINE TREATMENT. Not thye spray.
