Is anyone here using Amsoil Compresser oil in their automatic transmission? Any problems? Would you use it in a street/strip application?

I use the John Deere hydraulic oil in my race car transmissions. Lots of folks use it. Never heard of Amsoil compressor oil being used.

Sounds like it has some advantages for some applications. No idea how it might act on the street. You going to try it?

Kicking the idea around but my build is a long way from being done. I've got a 468/TH400/4000 converter that I might try to run a Gear Vendor's overdrive behind. I'm sure it's going to create a lot of heat and if the compressor oil has been found to stand up the best just curious how it works long term on the street.
I know there was someone on this forum that's been using it but can't remember who.

amsoil has 2 compressor oils

iso 46 which is no heavier than most tranny oils, just without the friction modifiers,

and iso 100 which is a heavy weight, heavy duty oil.

its expensive as all getup so i use a mobil dte iso 100 weight oil from grainger which is a little cheaper and mix is with jd hygard which is about iso 60, which is even cheaper still.

We've been using the Amsoil Compressor Oil for three years now in the race car. It's a synthetic that has very high flash points and has no friction modifiers. Several converter/trans vendors recommend it. They make it in several viscositys but we run 20wt. It's clear and oderless which is nice. I buy it by the 5 gallon pail which really cuts down the cost. I would highly recommend it for any high performance applications.
