I've been to 3 auto parts stores, all have said they don't carry it. What's worse is RP's own website says they don't carry it. Does anyone know where I can buy this stuff?

You want the RP Syncromax, and O'Reilley's carries it or you can buy it online a little cheaper maybe.

Yeah, all you need is the Synchromax. 2 quarts should do. I didn't even use 2 full quarts in mine before it started spewing back out. You should be able to find it fairly easy.

JUST KIDDING. Whoever I talked to on the phone didn't have a clue, they didn't have it. Back to the drawing board.

^got mine in 2 days from Jegs.com via FedEx.

Beware, however, of the $9.99 "packaging" charge they don't mention when they say "free shipping."

Really? Can't find? Just gonna have to order it then. I found some in my town, and its pretty small. Watch out for the hazardous materials shipping fee though, might be added on.

I'm not quitting til I find it. There's no way in hell living in the 'Motor City' that I'm going to order a type of oil online =/

i just ordered from mustangtuning.com so we'll see how it goes. they had the lowest price, $7.99, and free shipping with no minimum order. seems like a deal to me.

The last lot of RP stuff (5W30 engine oil and Synchromax) I purchased from a great eBay store. They were REALLY fast, and cheaper than others, even taking P&P into consideration.

Tires-N-Parts-Inc

I even made a mistake and ordered 5w20 oil, and e-mailed them. INSTANT reply, and they simply changed the order to 5w30 without a problem (my purchase was using "Buy It Now").

I'd highly recommend them.

Cheers, Shane

You won't find it locally ... I searched too.

Ordered mine from Summit ... showed up the next day.

Try Napa...that's who carries it around here :) You'll have better luck at a Napa distro center if you have one there

I tried 4 Napas, they said as a company they don't stock it and have to buy it through a 3rd party they have contracts with.

I'm pricing it from Summit and from Mustangtuning :) Thanks gang

How much are you buying? It's $8.95/qt on the Summit website and you need 2 qts (can re-use .1 qt of your original stuff - or by a 3rd and have extra). Shipping was like $5 to my house in Ann Arbor.

Mustang Tuning giving the stuff away for $3?

Shipping is free at Summit, but they add a handling fee to EVERY domestic order, in the amount of $9.75, which would make it more expensive, by a buck or two, than the guys I used.

2004SVTAutoXer, as for your comments about watered down oil from e-Bay, you must be living in the middle ages, or have your head stuck up your [email protected]#, if that's your opinion. Most vendors are professional companies who also use e-Bay as a storefront. Case in point would be CFM, but I'm sure you don't use them either, as they're also an eBay vendor, outside of their usual business!!!!!!!!!!! I'd also like to hear your explanation as to how you think these untrustworthy vendors get water into a factory sealed bottle of oil?

Cheers, Shane
