    Blackstone Analysis

As I have nothing to compare the results to stock, I dunno whether or not this differs from the factory in any way. I also dunno if this is common for transmission break-in in the 1st or 2nd change. As such in a while, I may "Mighty Vac" some of my current formula out and send it off for analysis for comparison purposes.

    Edit: Added a link to this post in the OP on 1st page.
    Was anything else off on the fluid from their analysis aside from the high iron levels? Just curious if you can post the stat sheet they gave you for it (if they did) and possibly compare it to a conventional GL-5 tranny fluid.

    New Mixture

    Hows the new mix running still? Any plans to have that tested by Blackstone as well?

    The new mix runs great. I actually have a few sample kits for Blackstone sittin here. What I am lacking is a vacuum pump to sample with. So I figure I'll test the new mixture when I change it out.

    Regarding the lab report. I dunno if Tim fixed the attachments feature yet or not, if he hasn't I'll host the sample report on photobucket and include up top.

    Good news. Turn in Concepts sells Extra-S in 1 quart bottles now...

    Extra S fluid!!!! Now in 1 quart containers!!!! - NASIOC

    I think I'm gonna start using this from now on since it's available in single serving quantities.

    Edit: Stuff costs an arm and a leg Maybe I'll go 1/2&1/2 with some synchromesh or something...

    $80 plus shipping gets you enough for the 5mt! Only $50 more and you might as well get 5 gallons of it.

    the five gallon pail is a good way to go cost wise, especially if you can find someone local to split it w/

    This thread (and others) convinced me to go with the Subaru Extra S.
    So, today I talked to my local dealer and asked them if I could just bring in empty quart containers and buy 4 qts of the Subaru Extra S out of their bulk supply. They said NO and gave me some BS excuse about not being able to sell hazardous materials in a different container than they were shipped from the manufacturer .
    So, I asked them for a price on the whole 5 gal bucket, they quoted me $206.44. I told them you can order it online for ~$150 shipped. Then they tried to talk me into just having them change the MT fluid in their service shop. He tried to sell it with "we have very reasonable rates and you won't have to deal with disposing of the used up stuff." I said, "ok but I enjoy doing it myself and you can recycle used oil for free at Kragen." Then I said thanks and left. I don't really like that dealership.

    Anyway, sorry for the rant.

    I have decided on:
    2 qts Red Line 75w90NS
    ~1.7 qts Red Line Lightweight shockproof

    Then thread was very helpful.

    Been there, done that, it had it's ass kicked by the Extra S.

    Seriously, just order a bucket of the Extra S. It IS worth it. Also TiC now sells quart bottles of the stuff, though it is a bit expensive.

    I know. No offense intended to TiC or any of their supporters, but you would have to be a complete idiot to spend $80+shipping for 4 qts of that gear oil. You can get it from SubaruGenuineParts.com for ~$150 for 20 qts.

    SubaruGenuineParts.com = $7.50/qt
    TiC = $20/qt



    I still do want to use the Extra S. The problem is I don't know of any local people who would want to buy the rest off me. All my Scoobie owning friends are 'take it to the mechanic for service' type of folks. I certainly don't want to have to deal with putting it in a different container and shipping it to recoup my costs.

    We'll see, maybe if I'm unhappy w/ the Red Line mix (which I don't foresee) I will take the plunge for the Extra S.

    Honestly, I agree with you. I have NO idea what that pricing is about. It makes filling a 6MT almost as much as buying the entire bucket of goo.

    what the dealer doesn't tell you is that they use cheap crap out of a big drum- whatever they can find. Extra S is too pricey for the dealers to use, but not too pricey for someone wanting a good fluid in their tranny

    Big Sky, you've been using the the Extra S for a while now if I recall. What OCI are you running with it?

    Yeah, I was aware of that (I think I read that from you already in a different thread!).
    The point is moot now anyway, but I was planning on making sure I actually saw the Extra S container that they took it out of.
