TS2 Oil

Seems like Castrol TSW is getting harder to find, anyone switching to something else?

Anything come to light that is better?

Thanks

Don't use Castrol.

Use Nye Synthetic Oil 605 or AC Delco supercharger oil 10-4041 (12345982). There's also a Motorcraft version of this but I dont remember the part number (both Nye and AC Delco stuff is exactly the same). The AC Delco stuff will be like $12 a bottle or something.

I called Lysholm (now whipple) and this is the oil they recommended for the lysholm blowers used in the TS2 kits.

Thank you.

Wonder why in the past Castrol TWS was specified over a special supercharger oil like you mention.
