Post Which Transmission Fluid to use?

I wanted to buy some transmission fluid (5MT) and was wondering what everyone else is using.

Ok, I've heard about Redline, but it's not easy to find. I'm in the Windsor/Detroit area. Are there any places that stock this? or is there anything else I can use off the shelf?

Does Canadian Tire, or Pep Boys have anything?

Their recommendation could cause you warranty problems. The oil you use must meet or exceed Subaru's spec.

MTL and MTL-90 are API <A HREF="http://www.redlineoil.com/redlineoil/mtlti.htm">GL-4 rated</A>.

Subaru specifies a API GL-5 oil or higher.

If you call Redline, and you give them the API rating requirement and viscocity you will be told the correct oil to use is <A HREF="http://www.redlineoil.com/redlineoil/gearolti.htm#75W90NS">75W90NS</A> in the manual transmission, and 75W90 in the rear diff.

Okay, this is mix that I learned from PK Motorsport. BUT, I tried it out and it works GREAT (esp. in the Georgia heat)!!!

Use 2 parts RedLine 75w90NS and 1 part 75w140NS for the tranny!

I can shift a little faster w/o any grind (and did one clutchless shift but that's it) at all temps!

See? now that's what I wanted to hear!

Thanks Brian, can you give me the name of the shop? I work in Detroit and from time to time, get out to the burbs.
