I have never been one to use additives. Most modern oils are very good. I am convinced the 2zz engine needs ZDDP to help preserve the cams. I plan on adding a bottle of Lucas TB Zinc-Plus it has ZDDP in it. I will be using it with Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40.
Has anyone used this Lucas product or anything els like it, or does anyone think this is a bad idea?
I know its bad for the cat but I am not concerned about damaging it, I may remove it.

I don't think it is a bad idea to use some to help protect the high lift cam lobes. In fact I put in a half bottle with each oil change. I do not recommend putting a whole bottle in. In my research, ZDDP over a certain level does not add any additional benefit.

Ok Thinks. Hopefully this along with the other stuff I have done will keep my cams in good shape.
