    SOA635000 is the part number that Subaru uses for a quart of 5w/30 when the oil is sold under warranty.
    SOA635001 is oem gear oil.
    For the record, we use 80w/90 valvoline for gear oil.
    Wow, just wow

    Little update- this stuff works and works well .

    Interestingly enough the ESX STi that is competing in the Speed GT competition is running this same fluid in it's gear box They tried a bunch of differnet stuff- you can imagine the demands of such a race would be on tranny fluid.

    I've tried multiple different synthetics in these transmissions, all resulting in a grind after a little while. They always feel great at first, but seem to wear down the syncros at an accelerated rate. I spoke to a friend at a dealer who also told me they use 75w 90 Valvoline dino oil.

    Ever since I stopped playing with the synthetic oils, I haven't had any problems.

    I'm thinking of getting this but dang 10 gal???!!

    I might just get it and see if I can sell what I don't use to others. Will this stuff work for the diff also? Or does the diff defenitely need the 80w?

    It will work perfectly in the WRX rear diff- STi needs a different one.

    Is this stuff hygroscopic? If it is, buying it in large quantities and saving it is a recipe for disaster. I only ask because it seems like so many of the fluids for cars try to be as inconvenient as possible and suck up all the water they can.

    This "stuff" is oil. And what do oil and water do? NOT MIX.

    oil/greases aren't much of a problem- brake fluid obviously would be a big concern in quantity.

    OK, BigSky, you've been driving this for a few months now, is it still a love affair? I put in Redline 75w90NS last week and, well, when it's good it's great, but I've never ground a gear before the switch (in this car) and I do it once or twice a day now. My fiancee just bought the 06 Saabaru, so the 5gal drum would just be kind of a family pack for us.
