    As I understood it, the Castrol product that was formerly SAF-XO was Castrol Syntrax "Longlife" (not Limited Slip). It appears that Castrol is no longer manufacturing the "Longlife" product given its absence on their website although you can still find it on Amazon. I purchased "Longlife" last year from AutohausAZ but they no longer carry it either.

    At the time of manufacture, Castrol was producing both "Longlife" and the Limited Slip product so I don't think the Limited Slip product is equivalent to the SAF-XO product.

    Castrol Limited Slip is the new name for Castrol Hypoy C and is a dino, no synthetic oil.

    Sorry. I should have been more specific... Castrol Syntrax Limited Slip 75W-90 is the product to which GTRider's link refers (as opposed to Castrol Syntrax Longlife 75W-90).

    The Castrol Syntrax Limited Slip product, while being a synthetic, is not the equivalent of SAF-XO. The SAF-XO equivalent was branded as Castrol Syntrax Longlife.

    Or am I missing your point?
