rev up your engines, today I’m taking a littledifferent slant, today I’m showing you some of the products that I tried outthat failed miserably, and I wouldn’t tell anybody to buy them, because yes I havea lot of junk in my garage, and to tell youthe truth, some of this new stuff that people sent me is exactly that junk, andthe first one is this f1z power launcher look at this thing, the theorybehind this power launcher f1z is it spins and creates turbulent air, you’resupposed to put it inside your air duct where the air goes into the engine, andthen as the air is sucked in it’s supposed to spin it around, and make it workbetter and put more air and make your engine faster, well this thing is totalnonsense, all it’s basically doing is creating a little bit of the restrictionto the air going to the your engine, if anything it’ll make you car run worsenot better yes turbochargers and superchargers thatram more air into the engine, they do work for power, they have an externalsource of power, the turbochargers use your exhaust gas to spin it, and thesuperchargers use a fan belt on your engine that spins the supercharger thatcompresses the air and then throws it into the engine, so stay away from thef1z, it’s just a scam don’t waste your money, I’ve seen people waste their money on it won’t waste yours, now the next thing not to waste your money on, is the BT master batteryvoltage monitor tester, it’s supposed to test your battery, your cranking systemfor the starter, and the alternator but it’s got numerous problems, the biggestone is, the app was this thing called BT master app, I couldn’t even get the phoneto communicate with it, and I got an s9 it’s a pretty good phone, I also havethree or four others I tried them all and none of them would even upload the appso it would interface with the device itself, now since I couldn’t even get theapp to work, it was some kind of crazy genericapp, I went to Amazon and saw their reviews, and the weird thing was, there were 10 reviews nine of them were saying howgreat it, was but one said, one star don’t believe the lies, and the other 9 they all praised it and said how great it was but they are allwritten between two days in January this year, it’s kind of obvious that they werejust seeding it with their own reviews and unfortunately I see that all thetime, especially with devices that require an app now, to show you thedifference, these are both supposed to do the same thing battery charging systemanalyzers, this foxwell hey it’s a self-enclosed unit, it goes on thebattery as you can see, it’s got pretty thick wires, look how cheesy the wires areon this other one, but the main thing is this is a standalone device, you hook it up andit checks your battery and charging systemthis thing it looks up and has this little unit inside, but then there’s anapp that’s supposed to go back and forth on your phone in order to do theanalysis, why on earth would you make a device that’s contained here and thenyou have to beam it with an app to your phone, and hope that the thing works, it’sjust stupid, you would make a standalone device that does it all itself like theFoxwell, why would you want to make something like this very cheaply made asyou can tell, the wires are thinner, it’s got cheap construction toit, and then you have an app that’s some kind of generic app that’s used bytesters to run their equipment, I see these apps not work all the time, in thiscase the saying, you get what you pay for, it’s totally true, now this may only be39.

95 but it didn’t even work, where the Foxwellis generally 130 dollars or so, it works fantastic, there are times when ifyou want something that actually works, you pay the price of a quality tool andyou get it, don’t just think you’re gonna get quality like this machine has that’sgonna check batteries and charging systems, but you’re gonna be able to getit for like one quarter of the price of one that actually works, and that’s themain reason I’m showing this on my video, because I literally have scores ofdevices like this, that are made in China, that have an appthe app doesn’t work, or it does once in a while, sometimes not others, and thenwhen you do get the app to work and you try the device, and compare it to onelike the Foxwell that I know works quite well, and they get completelydifferent data, they often give false data, so in the case of this BT batterymonitor, believe the one bad review that said don’t believe all this hype, now I’vetalked about these devices before that don’t work, this is the X Y 4 plus keyfinder, supposed to put it on your keys, your phone has an app, well it was anabsolute pile of junk, I bought it through Amazon and Icomplained later on last year, and now I look at on Amazon they don’t even sellthe XY 4 plus anymore, because they realize that it was a scam and they tookit off their site, so when it comes to buying tech items these days especiallynewer ones, don’t believe hype that people are going to say, whether it’sadvertising or one of the 10 best tools of 2018, whatever nonsense people arethrow it out to them, find somebody like me who’s tried them outor read serious reviews about it before you’re throwingyour money out, because unfortunately there’s a lot of junk out there on theInternet now the next thing not to buy is thiszeta atomic metal conditioner, it’s supposed to revitalize your engine whileyou drive, now snake oil salesmen have been around probably for centuries, butthis one takes it to an extreme, listen to what it claims it does, restoresworn engine metals, compensates the ongoing where parts, provides partsprotection again loads, reduces noise improves lubricating properties of oil, increases the engine life service span reduces fuel consumption, increasesengine power and acceleration, now is that too good to be true, well yeah of courseit is, I contacted the company and said hey give me some scientific evidencethat this stuff works, real scientists that I can talk to or email back andforth and check their credentials to make sure they real, and guess what, I neverheard from them again years ago I did he have a company thatwas selling some of the snake oil and they actually gave me this Universityprofessor his email and his phone number so I got ahold of the guy, and he said, I don’t know where those guys got my namefrom, but I would never back up some snake-oil thing like that, I’m ascientist, I’m a university professor, I’d lose my job if I was found selling snakeoil and there’s no proof that it helps your car, so I toldthat to the company and guess what I never heard from them again either, nowyears ago there were some products out there, I’m talking about the 1970s 60s, you put the additive in and it had metal in it, and the metal would bond onto worn piston rings and stuff, and it actuallydid that to some extent, but you’d never want to do that in a modern engine, theygot variable valve timing, they have all kinds of trick things with small littleholes in them, and if you get metal building up in those holes, they couldclog up your engine and blow the whole thing, so believe me stay away from thesemiracle snake oil additives that are going to rebuild your engine, you’retaking a chance you have no idea what’s inside these things, and in many casesthese things can be 20, 30, 40 dollars a bottle, it’s just a scam, now since thisis mechanic Monday, I’m gonna be giving a product away, but I am NOT evil, I’m notgonna give away one of these snake oil additives or products that don’t work, I’m giving away the one hundred and forty dollar Foxwell battery analyzerthat’s a good tool, to have a chance to win just place the non-offensive commenton the youtube comments below, and a winner will be chosen randomly bycomputer to win an actual battery and charging system analyzer that works, soif you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember toring that Bell!.
