    D2 4.2 v8 engine additive questions

    Hi everyone.

    Throwing this one out to more learned folks.

    Just got my dream car of a black s8 d2 4.2 v8 83kwith updated rims exhaust and a remap

    it's a beast.

    My ask is will the engine accept and benefit from a ptfe oil additive. It reduces friction etc etc on the engine so would seem to have a lot of benefits. My old v6 minded seemed smoother after adding it....or that could have been the placebo effect.

    Thanks in advance.

    no not add PTFE.....Audi always recommend a low ash fully synthetic oil but must admit I have always used 5-50 fully synthetic motor sport oil and changed oil plus filter every 5000 and 86,000 miles on my engine is still very sweet
