Re Swepco 202 75/90 synthetic tranny oil. GL5 (non dyno)

 

I am interested in trying this oil in my subie tranny and it seems a lot of people who have Porsches also use it in their 915 and other trannies.  I was wondering if any of you had plans or want to try it. 

FYI, I can get it shipped from the USA but it is like $100 USA $ plus shipping etc. I found a local supplier to large trucking firms and he can provide me with the following quantities. 

Either a 19L   or 6x4L  but those are the minimum quantities so I will have it forever. 

I wonder if anyone in Ontario might be interested, these prices are in Canadian dollars of course plus HST. 

If I get a few people we could do the 6x4L purchase and share them if not I will probably buy the 19L size. 

Anyway, thanks for listening..

Well I made the jump, I got 4 liters or 4 US quartz for you guys and fed my hose contraption using a dowel stuck in the hose all the way down under, until I could get the tube well located then removed the dowel and stuck it in the hole and fed in the 4L recommended by Subarugears for reversed R&P trannies. 

Well I have tried Redline, Total 80w90, then added Archoil and it was notchy cold and good hot. 

Well, I had a bit of a notch it seemed going to 3rd cold, but I wasn't sure if it was my imagination in any case, I warmed it up and it kept shifting so well, I had no issues, no notching, up shifts, down shifts.  I could only go so far before dinner so I took the tranny up to a temperature of 140F with my engine temp at 195 on my Engineguard guage and I am now completely swepco 202 Awesome stuff. 

Thanks to all of you for helping with this process.
