I don't believe it's the same spec, I would definitely steer away from anything SuperTech personally. From my understanding it's kinda like the advanced auto brand fluids, and I hear (though I cannot confirm) that they simply use old fluids and clean them or some crazy shindig like that. Remember, you get what you pay for, buy cheap fluids expect cheap results.

I expect that supertech is a low-bid oil but I also expect it is new oil that meets the specs on the bottle. I would not expect the brand of oil behind the supertech label to remain constant.

SuperTech uses Valvoline and Texaco. Depending on the product is the only variable.

Like oil, that can be either company depending on certs. ATF is Texaco unless it's an odd ball cert like ATF+4, then it is Valvoline. Texaco provides ATF for a lot of private or house brands for Walmart, Oreilly, Autozone, ect...
