BTW, I've always felt like Driver72 shot straight. Unless I find out he has a pecuniary interest in the product, I'll assume that he's a believer and not a deceiver.

Yup, I used that creatine for awhile myself.
Most recently I've used that "5 hour energy" drink that comes in that small little red bottle.
I doubt that's approved or tested by the FDA, but good God, it works.
I've taken that stuff a few times when I was dragging ss, and within about 20 minutes up gulping down the grape flavored version, I was awake, wide awake.
I definitely gives you a step up...and it ain't sugar that's doing it.
But again, that's a whole nother story or post.

The Syntek worked for me and passed my tests. It has apparently worked for many, many others.
If you guys want to try it, fine, if you don't no sweat off my back.

If you do dynos at the same shop, same dyno with similar temp/humidity and consistently see 10+ WHP gains, that sounds like strong evidence to me.

As others have pointed out, we don't yet know if it will bugger up the O2 sensors or other engine components.

thanks man.
Trust me, had the stuff not worked in my car, the only post you'd of seen about Syntek from me, is telling people it didn't do crap when I tried it.
But that's what the dynos were for, to actually SEE first hand IF the stuff did anything.
People can deduce what they want from the dynos, but to me, it did what it claims in that regard, and in the MPG regard with my wife's Prius.

I don't think this is one of those Tornado intake thing-a-ma-jigs that claim something but are a total rip off.

Again, for the last time, I'd love to see others test it and report back.
If I just got lucky and it don't work for others, I'll stop using it.
But on the other hand, if others try it, get good results themselves, I think I'll continue using the stuff for quite awhile.

Cheers

This sort of reminds me of those commercials that were selling a fuel additive awhile back along side with the tornado intake thingy. I forget the name of the additive...

haha, creatine was the bomb! I was using that stuff back in the day, and it serously worked (which is why I think I heard it's now banned).

Creatine has not been banned and is considered a very safe supplement that allows muscles to recover more quickly after a weightlifting session.

You are probably thinking about ephedra - The supplement that basically is like speed and can cause serious health issues if abused.

ps I ordered the syntek yesterday and will give it a try and report back.

My P90X supplement mix has creatine in it. And I didn't have to drive across the boarder to get it.

I will attest to creatine and it's benefits.

Maybe we can try some creatine in the gas tank to see if the phosphate molecules help the engine recover faster from a heavy heatsoak session

Well... Isn't Amsoil a multi-level marketing "scheme", too? No one really complains about them since their product is good.

If this stuff works and doesn't cause issues with DI systems (which is yet to be proven), it'd probably be a good thing to try.

Creatine is great if you conirually take it for the rest of your life

Might as well get HGH, at least the gains will be permanent.

Nothing like some good hyperplasia.

But I hear that taking too much HGH can screw up your spelling skills

Michael, read the reviews on the slap chop. They are surprisingly good. I bought the Sham-Wow and was taken. All it does is spread the water around. Brawny paper towels do a better job soaking up liquids.

Hope this helps.

Doesn't surprise me.
Ever since Oxy Clean Billy has taken off.
I can see his ego booming and probably got his panties in a wad over the competition from the guy who sold the Sham-Wow and now the Slap Chop and others.
Billy is annoying as all h3ll personally, but this Vince guy cracks me up.

Sorry, taking my own post OT.
