Re: IML: Lead Additive

    I would suggest converting the engine to unleaded. Lead was a lubricant and without it you will fry the softer leaded specific parts eventually. Having to deal with unleaded additives is a science in itself and is very costly. An engine rebuild will pay itself off in a short period of time. I burned up a lifter trying to keep up with it and was always battling a ping even with high octane gas. After my engine was rebuilt and converted to unleaded, I can run on 87 octane, all day long, and never have any issues. Plus I got about another 10 HP from just machining the heads a hair off in the process. I have never had to worry about gas or additives since. Plus 87 octane is cheaper then 94 and the cost of additives in every tank full. Trust me on this one.

Subject: IML: Lead Additive

I own a 1966 Chrysler Imperial.  Some mechanics say use a lead additive, plus premium gas, and some say just use premium gas. I'm confused.  What do the Imperialist use?
