    Interesting, but not very scientific. If you look at the variance of his controls, the results fall well within that variance. What he should do is show the std. error of each average normalized against his controls. It would probably be close to a flat line.

    Trans fluid with a little laquer thinner mixed in is my go to. If it needs doing in a hurry the torches usually come out to play.

    Kroil has proven itself countless times for me: http://www.kanolabs.com/
    Best example: some years back, I was able to remove the intake/exhaust manifolds from a '61 Dodge slant six engine without snapping a stud.

    X2, great stuff. I've used ATF/Acetone as well.

    Some 10-12 years back, I found an in-depth study (either on Jeepforum.com or Jeepstrokers.com) on penetrating lubes. All of the major/industrial/commercial brands were tested with results listed. I was a Kroil fan but quickly became a huge, never-look-back believer of the 50/50 mix of acetone and ATF. It tested out more than 10 times better at creeping into places than the next best lube. Kroil did well, PB Blaster not so well. It was during this same time that I was rebuilding my Jeep TJ that had drowned in the salt water of the Gulf of Mexico during Katrina. Imagine breaking undercarriage, drivetrain, and exhaust bolts free after 2+ years after being subjected to that environment! The ATF/Acetone handled it like a champ!!

    Coat it, wait 10 mins, coat again and get to work. For extreme cases, let it creep for 30 mins. It won't take much either.

    No time to stop and soak for this guy 99% of the time. Not me very often that’s for sure. Why I use this, and it outperforms BP blast IMO 10:1.
    There hasn’t been something it couldn’t get off that another product could.
