Castrol BOT 402 or Texaco MTF94?

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I'm working in a Castrol import company, so I have the option for buying BOT 402 MTF instead of Texaco MTF 94. However, reviewing technical sheet for both of them, I find they are really differents, but I don't know how to read their values, can anybody help me with this?

Texaco MTF94:

The castrol oil appears to have a much higher viscosity (thickness) when cold, and a slightly higher viscosity when hot.

I'd imagine it would probably cause shift issues.

Apparently Castrol SMX 75w80 is a better match for MTF94

edit: having said that, it seems the castrol oil (Actually called SMX-S) is a 75w85 and is still a bit thicker when cold than the proper oil.
