Default Lucas Oil Stabilizer

I have an 02' WRX with the stock turbo.I got my oil changed yesterday with the usual Mobil 1(5 quarts) but I had them put in a quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer. After it was in , one of the guys at the shop said he has heard that product can clog (gumm) up the turbo oil lines. Is this true? If so, I'm going to drain it immediatly. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hmmm, not to sure about that, i've used it for about 10k with no problems, my td04 that I took off looked fine, i didn't notice any abnormalties with using it, was it the new vehicle formula?? they make 2 kinds heavy duty and new vehicle, dont use the heavy duty.
Most will tell you not to use it period.They have the impression it's like putting sawdust in a tranny lol. It works fine for me, whether it really helps i'll never know but it sure don't seem to be hurting anything.

There is absolutely no need for oil additives of any kind especially with synthetic oil.

yeah if you watch the video on Bobistheoilguy.com you will drain it immediately. All it does is add air bubles to the oil which is not good at all!
