I haven't used Eastwood's system, but I have had the dye system used
on my truck recently. It was a big help. The transmission was leaking,
and it was difficult to determine the exact source of the leak. After
power-washing the oil off the trans, we put the dye in, drove around
for a couple of days, and then used the black-light to find the source.
We found one source, and then after repairing that, found a second
source of the leaks. It is now oil tight.

There should be no reason why you can't buy the dye and just use
a black light from a different source if you already have one or you
can find one cheaper.
