    oil additives, manual tranny and motor oils

    what would your recommendation be at this point? new fluid without any additives?

    oil additives, manual tranny and motor oils

    im not trying to power shift either. just be able to shift fast. it almost restricts me from going any faster then normal. any suggestions? maybe try different oils? or get that additive out of there?

    oil additives, manual tranny and motor oils

    damn. so whats with everyone saying the torsen needs the motorcraft friction modifier? coud that be the cause? didnt really do much on my old transmission
  13. i have some very specific questions in two separate areas.. ive been reading a lot on motor oil additives and how zinc and molybdenum are anti wear items. so i read you shouldnt have more then 1800ppm of zddp or else it would start eating metals. nothing about moly though... but how does does moly effect engine components? would it hurt to add more moly? most motor oil already has some moly in it but is more bad? all that research got me to thinking about my transmission.. when i "rebuilt" mine, i took 2 trannys apart and used only the best parts from both to put 1 together, including syncros. but its still hard to shift fast. it would jam really quick until i clutch and shift again. the fluid i used was ford honey with snake oil additive. this got me to thinking. does the snake oil change the coefficient of friction enough to play a role on the syncro performance? i cant seem to find enough on snake oils. if so.. what if i added lucas oil stabilizer to the transmission to make it thicker possibly make syncros work better? or used different tranny fluid? basically i need to shift fast... lol. any info would be appreciated

    my intro

    i dont remember but i could find out. but i wouldnt use it. it sounds terrible! lol. i switched to my single now. its because of the true dual. it needs to connect into a single pipe either before the muffler or after to make the sounds resonate better.
