This product is the bomb for us PSD owners I was going to try HOT-Shot -Secret I don't know anything about it I think it is more a lubricating flush persay than a super/lube/cleaner like REV-X appears to be I fought power isssues related to crap in my oil from extended oil chages 5-7 k in Rotella and DelVac NEVER AGAIN will I run that oil in anything I think it's no better than castrol-gtx 10w30 lol anyway I fixed in 1 day and 100 miles of driving what I had been fighting for 6 mos.

This is my story I don't care who you buy it from IT WORKS PERIOD....

I am going to run REV-X in conjunction with AMSOIL on a 15,000 drain interval with a new filter at 7,500 miles using their 1 micron filters and see what happens if I don't see good results / cleaner oil longer I will probably switch to schaffers which I hear is like AMSOIL with REV-X already in it ! For the same price as Amsoil...

Read my thread I cannot say enough about the product .... I am running my last oil change with Rotella-T till 3,000 then I am doing a complete flush of the Rotella-T which BTW you must remove completely when you switch to a full synthetic it is the number one reason why people complain of sludge in our engines after switching to synthetic the 3 quarts of oil that stays in the HPOP it's resivor and the high pressure lines as well as each head is directly responsible for turning to sludge it will not withstand the extended drain interval inside the crankcase with the amsoil or schaffer's or whatever you pick, not getting into a synthetic choice argument just explaining why people will say it sludges it does not sludge the Dino oil you leave in the system will shear/breakdown/burn and turn to sludge whereas the synthetic will hold up alot better over the extended drain intervals that synthetics offer powerstroke owners not to mention the low temperature pour points ect ect ...the main key is to get as much of the dino oil out of the engine to minimize sludge formation any that is left after you purge the HPOP system will come out at the first oil change after you switch from then on your in the clear.

To purge the dino oil out .......

1.Drain all the oil in the pan and then replace the plug.

2.Remove filter and fill up new flter befor eyou spin on with synthetic.

3.Use a suction device of your choosing to suck as much oil out of the HPOP resivor as you can get.

4. Refill HPOP resivor with new synthetic oil and replace fill inspection plug.

5.Remove oil galley plugs at the back of each head and insert a hudralic adapter I have it written down someplace few bucks for two and that adapts to a #4 JIC hydrulaic fitting you then run a thin 3/8 hydrualic line from each head to a bucket ....you crank then engine in say 5 to 10 second bursts giving a minute or two for cooldown so you don't smoke your starter motor until you see fresh new clean synthetic oil pumping out of the hoses.

6.Take off hoses replace plugs in the heads and dump remaining oil into the motor your done.

7. Enjoy extended oil changes/cleaner oil / peace of mind/ less wear on your motor /easy cranking in the winter the list goes on.

8.Now add REV-X to complete the package and see how your truck runs and watch your mileage improve

The 7.3 motor costs probably 8,000 to replace/rebuild even if you do it yourself don't you think it deserves a better level of oil and addatives to protect your investment?

A new PSD is 57,000 in my town dually is 65,000 decked out .....I'll keep my 7.3 it's almost paid for

scott...so are the 6.0's or 7.3's sludge monsters? I ask because this is the first time I have EVER heard that!

I hate to be a kill joy but, that long post smells like some stuff I have read on other sites. The posters finally admitted to being paid in one form or another by the products maker(free product, oil and sometimes cash), to loudly endorse their product on all of the forums they could.
What smells the worst in this post is the part about switching from dino to synthetic causing sludge. All the oil makers websites I have gone to, state in their faq section that mixing dino with synthetics will cause no harm to the oil or engine.

I am not going against rev-x but more the way it was posted in this thread, like I said earlier it just doesn't "smell" right.

To Defend REV-X i ill say that everyone i have spoken to says it worked great for them... i may just be that one bad apple that it didnt do anything for me. When i have the shop that does all my work First Coast Diesel Performance tell me personally that they have also heard nothing but good things about it i tend to believe them.

*disclaimer* at the time i added the rev x i also did my egr delete, new oil cooler and installed a mildly tuned FICM... so it may have done something for my truck BUT with all those changes coming at the same time i may not have noticed it.

None of the guys you here saying how well it works were paid by the company.

Tim Scherer a member here and on several other forums organized a test group of us. We all had stiction issues. We all were given 2 4oz bottles of RevX for free in exchange for posting results.

I just had some issues with the long post, not the product.
Please show me a place where either the 7.3 or 6.0 is a motor that is prone to sludge. That is my biggest complaint. Also that mixing dino and syn oils cause sludge!
If it is open knowledge that the product is/was given away free to post honest results that is fine.
The example I am speaking of, the posters would fight to the death to defend the product if a person said it didn't work as advertised.
