PN 12345349 actually gives BOTH of the different ac delco fluids, hence the confusion! which one do i get?!

i'll just get the one that says manual gearboxes on it.

what i'm saying is, the one GM part number (12345349) gives TWO different AC Delco fluids (349 or 333).

nonetheless, i'll get the one that says for manual 'boxes. the critical part here is that i've managed to find the castrol stuff.

edit: so the local shop has "axle limited slip 90" and "axle EPX 80-90". LS is labelled for LS obviously, and the EPX is labelled for gearboxes. which one do i get?

if anyone's purchasing stuff sometime in the near future i'd love if you could buy an extra few bottles of pennzoil synchromesh and send them to me (i will reimburse you costs obviously). i can't find anyone that stocks it in aussieland or any yank sellers that will actually send it here (even if i pay the costs). not even amazon. pretty ridiculous really.

Pretty darn tall - 35-ish cm off the top of my head, tall and narrow. Some careful repacking in, say, a nalgene bottle might get more packing density in shipping box.

Edit: ~30 cm tall and ~8 cm diameter.

I have been running the cocktail in my 2000 OBS and it helped immensely. I bought the car with 194k on it and I never thought it would shift smoothly again. I live in New England and it takes a little bit for it to warm up, but that is to be expected. The cocktail has certainly made for a happy transmission.

Now it is time for some new shifter bushings.

well....i read up on the regs and seems that if the flashpoint is over 201*F then you have to conform to combustible material regs which arent as bad

ill have to do more research

From what I've read, Syntrax is good stuff for Subaru's. We don't get that here.
