Angry The 911 Board drives me crazy!

Swepco debate. Why why why do I let myself get worked up over this?

On topic: Go check your 914/901 transmission and change your tranny oil every 12,000 miles or once per year, which ever is sooner.

Well, that was entertaining.

Relax James, take a deep breath and just walk away.....

Better yet, RUN!

If enough people swear that something is good, and enough dollars are spent on advertising, then it must be good, right?


Getting ready to step on toes...

Jeff, that is my point.

Everything about Swepco is anecdotal. If you posted the same thing about an electric super charger, _everyone_ would groan and require data.

But with the oils - Well, you just can't do a scientific study, you see. What???????????????????

James

Sean - La Cetto in B.C. sells gallons of Olive oil for about 1/3rd the price of Swepco. And don't forget, its natural! And if you get hungry, you can drain the tranny and put it on some bread with balsamic vinegar.

I've found a new brand of transmission fluid that really works great. Its made by the Reptico company and goes by the name of Snake. You mix your regular oil with this new Snake Oil and it helps your parts last 3-X as long.

In the race car we used a 50/50 mix of 90W and Autotrans fluid - drained it after each race weekend tho (ATF is high detergent and kept things clean). Only lost one tranny in 15 years of racing.
Is that proof enough.

If I package it, will you guys buy it for $5.00 a pint? I'll even label it "15 Year Track Tested Tranny Fluid".

I paid and used SWEPCO - it just showed me where my tranny leaked for $7.00 pint.

I use 90W and it smells like a concourse weinie phart.

Damnit!!!

Glycerine

I have a bunch of this, and was wondering, even though the transaxle is not exactly a rear-end, would these be a good additive? Would they make it runny a little loosey?
