These are the same claims that have been made about synthetics for years. 5.0 magazine ran a test a few months back that verified a 3 - 5 hp increase using a synthetic.
Do I think that oil can affect the power output of an engine? Yes.
Do I think that that
oil will give you a 10 hp increase? Probably not.
I suppose it's possible, but since I change my oil and filter every 2500 miles, I'm not willing to spend a huge amount of cash to pick up a trivial amount of power that may or may not actually be there.
