Default Clunkers engine killers

I know there are a couple guys on here who work at dealers and dumping in the engine killer additive. I'm curious as to which engines take the longest to die. What brand and year range are the toughest?

92 Ford 300 straight 6. My friend took 2 different times to kill it. The first time he bounced it off the rev limiter for 5 minutes and it over heated and stalled. Did it all over again an hour later for 4 more minutes.

Ford straight 6!
Had it revved up so long the radiator cap blew right off the
radiator, it ran for about 5 min after that.

To the opposite end... 1994 Cherokee 4.0L. Drained the oil, dumped
in the liquid death, started engine and put trans in gear and engine
siezed. Could not have lasted 15 seconds!

The Ford 300 doesn't surprise me a bit. Thats on of the best of engines of all time! I got thinking of this topic yesterday when I drove by the local Chevy dealer and saw a late '80's BMW 5 series sitting in the "clunkers" row, kinda made me a little sick . I got to thinking about how long it took for that BMW engine to seize?
