Best price I've seen is from Foreign Intrigue, who has it on sale each Jan and Feb. You might contact them to see what their current price is. (www.foreignintrigue.com). No connection, just a satisfied customer...
I have to add here that I just put Swepco 212 in my 83SC.I had been running 201 and decided to try the 212 to see if I could tell a difference. WOW !! Without question this made a difference. I got the 212 from Pelicanparts.
IYO, would 212 be OK in a 915 tranny that had a rebuild about 1,000 miles ago? I'm getting ready to drain her out and replace. I was going to go with 201 (the wrench used Castrol, after he drained my 201 out when it blew a seal), however I have not ordered yet, and if 212 is a better choice, I'll go that way. Thanks for your input!
I have tried a couple of different tranny fluids, Redline, and Swepco 201. The 201 was better than the Redline, but 915 trannys tend to favor a non synthetic fluid so the Swepco was much better. I was reading a post on Pelicanparts about the 212, if you go to pelican and do a search Warren Hall has a post that really gives the low down on why 212 is a better choice than 201. Now this info mainly applies to high heat areas, like in the deep south, or racing applications.I find that my tranny shifts a bit smoother and my first gear is not quite as notchy, I have 248,000 miles on an origional tranny and I am fighting a rebuild. I change my tranny fluid every year as a precaution.
This may be over kill.... but anything I can do to make my car shift better untill I can afford the rebuild is a good thing !
I have 201 in my G50. some people say "don't / can't" whilst Swepco say "OK".... now here'es the dilema. I have a Club sport (i live in UK so it's EU spec) has an LSD, and I heard that 201 might prevent correct operation of the LSD. Could anyone confirm this ? - What it the best oil to help the notchy 1st to 2nd gear change ? - Swepco seems to do the trick....but @ what risk ?
Hi all, I used to sell SWEPCO. The differance between 201 and 212 is molybdenum sulfide, which is a moly additive. According to SWEPCO you may not want to use moly in some LSD trannys but 201 or 210 will work fine in LSD. I run 201 in my '79 930 with LSD, and my '88 G50 with no problems and both cars run DEs. SWEPCO 210 and 203 moly comes in multi-grade and single grade oils. SWEPCO 210 and 212 moly comes in only 80w/140 multi-grade oil.
