For a street car would there be any difference in a DOT 4 ??

Im going to order a Motive 100 power bleeder (any other suggestions ?)

Thanks

Dwight

Sorry they still have the Pentosin line in our stores. Do you have any O'Reilly's near you?

Napa has the pentosin on sale right now for $9 something/liter, I got 2 for my other cars. In the boxster I use ATE type 200 "super gold" @$15/liter. If I wasn't doing any tracking in the bocster I would use the pentosin, I heard that the Porsche fluid is relabeled pentosin (unverified )
