Question 915 tranmission oil ??

I have a 911 with a 915-61 transmission, I've had the car for 18 years (around 200k on the clock) and been using Castrol Manual Multitrax (API gl5, SAE 80W-90, it is around $45 for 4l) most of that time and it appears to perform well.
In the US there is a lot of talk about the best oil for these boxes, what are people here in AUS using that is readily available? All comments/feedback welcome.
Cheers Ray

Hi Ray - I use the Swepco 201, I get it from here:

Alan A Paice
28 Richard Street, Hindmarsh SA 5007
Telephone: (08) 8340 1436

After my tranny rebuild it took a little while to 'break in' but it feels absolutely beautiful now.

I've also looked unsuccessfully for the other recommended fluid, 'Kendall NS-MP Hypoid Gear Lubricant, SAE 80W-90'. I'd be interested in comparing it, just because.

Castrol for me too

I am on Castrol for all my garage's needs. They have a good "lube finder" lube reference guide on their website (refer Castrol Australia - NetLube)
that recommends which of their oil/lube product to use for every application in just about every vehicle in AUS.

My opinion is that they would not publicly do that with out complete confidence in their product.
