Good Experience with Oil Additive!

I recently changed the oil in my '82 300D Turbo and added a product called "Engine Restore". It comes in a silver cylinder for either 4, 6, or 8 cyl applications. I have noticed a bit more pep with the 303,000 mile engine. This product is priced fairly reasonably, under $10.00. Has anyone else had a good experience with this or any other additive?

I am also looking to add a Pro-Long tranny additive, but I've heard stories of the transmission going out after adding stuff like that.

I used some of that Restore on my old Mustang that was burning oil bad on 1 cylinder (kept fouling the plug). It seemed to help a little but I think any of those products are really just snake-oil. I have found STP to do a good job of quieting a lifter that leaks down on the 300CE. Without it it will tap for a few seconds on cold startup , the STP seems to stop it.
As far as tranny additives go most of them are seal softening types . If you used some , put it in 1000 miles before you change filter and fluid . I don't think it's a good idea to leave it in between changes.
