Default Transmission Fluid on Turbo car!!!

I am about to have my turbo kit installed soon. I am running stock tranny and stock internals, so I am only running about 4.5lbs of boost. I was wondering what u guys thought would be the best transmission fluid to help protect the synchros as much as possible.

I remember reading that u can either buy fluid to help the life of the synchros or the bearings. In my case, I would rather go all out to save the synchros and help keep them lubricated more. I don't want to neglect the bearing and ruin its life, but i am leaning towards a thicker oil, or one that would protect gears more. What do you guys recommend?

thanks, Kevin
