There are no additives in the gold. Originally, Ford said you didn't need SCA with the gold, then they changed their mind. The gold does turn into a gelatinous snot when it gets hot. Kills the 6.0 oil cooler but our passages are larger and you might be ok. Your better choice would be an ELC that uses a different protection method than SCA to prevent cavitation. I use Rotella ELC myself.
