Just go to something like Napa and ask for Mercon V and they have that labeled that. Not sure if that is the brand, though, hah.

Lol, sucks! I hope I don't those issues!

I had to use that steel tube so the temperature probe can sit inside there and take a reading! It's too long to fit inside the standard 1/8" sensor fittings!

I need to redo mine...It is touching the downpipe in one small spot, but will most likely burn through the stainless line or blow it completely. I'll do that on Thurdsay when I install more things!
