Sta Lube is what my local Subaru dealer had for offer.

I put some of their stuff in my differential but i haven't decided what to do in the transmission.

I think the differential was synthetic, I forgot what the Sta Lube transmission oil was.

I believe it is non-synthetic ....or at least it didt say it was synthetic

Sta Lube is just your basic gear oil sold at the auto parts stores.
I haven't used it in almost 15 years. It was very thick. If thats what Subaru sells then its no wonder their tranny feel like crap. Do your Subie a favor and order some NEO HD.

I have heard pros/cons of synthetic fluids in gear box so i am probably going to stick with dyno.
Doesn't it take like 80$ worth of NEO to fill tranny? Kinda rediculous if you ask me.

If you search the boards you will find about 95% "pro" for Neo and about 95% con for Mobil 1. All trannys and oils are different. You need to find the one that works for yours. My 91 Toyota truck loves Redline MT-90 but it gets bad revieves for most Subies. My Subie loves Neo HD at $40 a gallon. Most of the people are buying the Neo RHD ( as in RACE) at $80 a gallon. The more is better theory? Maybe but I'm happy with the HD.

I've used many different syns in my other cars (non Subies)and all were better or the same as dinos. If you don't have a shifting problem now then don't change oil type. If you want to stay dino then Valvoline is pretty easy to find.

I used sta-lube 75w90 limites slip (orange label) gear oil in my 2000 RS.

I was very happy with it. It was way better than the Amsoil Synthetic that cost three times as much, I had in there before.

I never had a problem grinding till i put amsoil synthetic in the tranny.

I would use kendell if I could find it!
