I just treated my new (18 year old) truck to the same stuff. I'm a believer.
Redline is great stuff. I usually save it for the trans and use oreillys juice in the pineapple though.

In other news Iím adding a 20į outdoor alternator swap to my list. Got this one rebuilt last summer but it just shit out on the highway. Who knew these things could run on 6 volts lol. Was going to risk it finishing the drive but got pulled over for no lights and did AAA. You guys have any luck with the Napa ones? Sort of cheesed this thing didnít make it a year.

What was the warranty? If it was a year, I'd take it back and squabble...

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

My "best case" list for my 88 VG30i is:
-Pacesetter headers, gonna get VG30e to have cleaner blockoff of stovepipe etc with my carb setup.
-Do some very necessary door sealing and sound deadening. My sub fights highway noise but only to a degree.
-Get the windshield replaced, OG is starting to delaminate and fog.
-Dumb but necessary stuff: P/S pulley, rear brakes.
-Money providing, Ziebart spa day for undercoating and bed lining. This is the first Southern truck I've brought to the rust belt so trying to keep it nice.
-HEI dizzy or EI for spark advance with the Weber but honestly that's either a 2023 or never.

-If it's a really, really good year, a 280z or VW Scirocco for a fun good MPG daily.
