always engage your 1st gear somewhat slowly, whether from a roll or from a stop. Jamming it in there won't help (not saynig that's what you're doing, just speaking out of personal experience.

Me, I only have 19k on my car, and ever since day 1, I gently press the clutch in, and take the shifter left then forward, using my wrist, not my entire arm. Works charms.

Reverse is always a pain though.


Good luck

"Is anyone putting this together as a package anymore so I don't have to chase down individual things? Someone was doing this before. I am long overdue for this change out."

Yes, Suncoast does, http://www.suncoastautosport.com/pro...ducts_id=10130

I had problems using Suncoast, so I bought the redline off Amazon.com and found the rest locally, although I had to substitute for the Castrol. I think most can get it.

Suncoast says they send instructions, I believe...Scotty has said order of putting in isn't an issue or the "exact" amounts...

I am lucky, my old Subaru Mechanic moved to a Ford dealership and is still doing Suby's on the side (slipped me his number in his last week). This could be interesting... I have a list. He was distinctly intrigued by Scotty's cocktail and looking forward to putting it in and hearing my take on it when I get back from my 3K trip...

I am capable, but don't have the equipment (anymore) and haven't done much mechanically in 20 years and what the heck, we both like beer...

If you go to www.amazon.com and search for one item, it links all the others. So in effect, Amazon has all you need there.

Kinda ingenious that amazon groups products like that based on previous customer purchases

Try your local speedshop for the Redline. Autozone and Pepboys ought to have the rest. I did mine tonight along with the rear diff, after a brief blast around the block it didn't seem to be much of an improvement, I'll know for sure after my long commute tomm. am.

I am wondering why the NS version of Red Line in the rear differential vs the non NS version???

What is the advantage? I know it does NOT have the friction modifiers and so allows more friction and therefore I imagine more of a bite on gear to gear. Is this a good thing in the differential?

friction modifiers for synchros INCREASE friction. This is done to make the synchronizer have better response on the cone that accelerates the gear being selected.

Non LSD rears and viscous coupled rears don't rely on friction for operation. they simply need a slippery oil to lubricate the gear teeth and bearings, as well as cool the bearings.

Clutch type LSD's need friction modifiers similar to synchros to get the proper engagement.

I changed my tranny fluid this weekend. My car seems to shift much smoother. Also, anyone looking for a cheap T-70 bit I found one at http://shoptoolsshoptools.com/shopdi...t=Subaru+Tools+ $5.95

redline recommends 75w90NS in the tranny and 75w90 in the rear diff.

I did this about 2 months back and its not as smooth as I expected.

Also, when you are rolling slowly(5-10mph), and 2nd gear is too low to use, so you try to get it into first cause the douchbag behind you is on your arse so you cant come to a complete stop, and you push somewhat firmly into first gear, the tranny makes a grinding noise like when you go into reverse at low movement....tranny never did this before with stock oil....not sure of what importance this is, would have tried scotty's mix but at the time already purchased red line and his mix was of such a barrage of products, i decided to stick with what worked good in my previous car!

+1 for Uncle Scotty's cocktail

Just changed my tranny oil this morning and put in Uncle Scotty's cocktail. Before the change I was running 1qt synchromesh and the rest valvoline 75w-90. With the old mix the tranny shifted a bit smoother and easier than when I used all valvoline 75w-90. With Uncle Scotty's cocktail in the tranny it shifts even better than the previous mix of valvoline/sycnhromesh!

You sir are a hero for coming up with this!

After a few miles on the Unc mix I gotta say, the trans definitely feels smoother. I can grab 1st from a roll now as well as when I'm at a stop I dont feel as much resistance when going into first. Thanks Unc.

Yeah, they started using the Torx in 2004 because oil change shops would confuse the tranny drain plug as the oil drain plug.

Did this on Saturday. Slight improvement overall. Downshifting is still a bit resistive and second gear is still a bit notchy.
