I do not remember MT-90 being red, it's more of a straw color iirc.
I think the MTL is red though.
The shockproof is probably eating the syncros (brass) in Nick's pic, that is why it seized. You have to be careful with brass syncros, it's a pretty reactive alloy. The MT-90 and MTL are syncro safe. I stick with the MT-90.

I personally don't trust the shockproof with the syncros but to each their own. Hope it works out for you, please post results after driving for a while if possible.

yeah the shockproof has some nasty yellow-metal eating additives.
I do, however, like the idea and theory of it...

I'm sticking with MT-90.

Is this the fluid that you guys are using?
http://www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=46&pcid=7

My transmission has been whining a little bit, and shifting is not very smooth at all, so I was planning on doing an MTF flush. This is $12.49 for 4 quarts, compared to MTF0063, $10.80 per liter (from eeuro). Do you follow the same flushing procedure as described in the TSB, 2 flushes + final fill? I'd definitely like to use this redline, as it is a bit cheaper, and if it's worked well for you all, well, it should work good for me.

Id just get the MTF0063. Simply for the smell...

The smell is what counts, huh? What about the price?

STFU. Know your place.* Your MTF smells like cherry and only needs a little amount of fluid.

Try dealing with ATF. (Have you ever smelled burned ATF before?)

Then you can bitch and moan.

When I flushed mine I walked around the shop just to make people smell the fresh MTF0063. People thought I was nuts, until they caught a whiff.

yes that is it! Redline MT-90

I was coming from 0063.

I did a single flush- ran for 15 minutes (if I were to do it again I'd go for a little more time) shifting through all gears, focusing more on first through third.

Drained and re-cleaned the drain plug magnet.

filled.

enjoyed.


You boys can have your cherry scented 0063, I'll take my MT-90 that shifts well [better than 0063]!

Yeah MTF0063 does smell pretty good.

I think I might have drained and filled twice, but once should be fine.

A gear oil that smells good! Awesome. I use to run REDLINE online but since looking at BOBTHEOILGUY I haven't been as convinced as I once was.

So I finally got my order today, and I was more than slightly disappointed to find that I read "GL-4 - Quart" as "GL - 4-quart".

So I have less than half of the fluid I need. I thought that it seemed to be a very good deal...but now not so much lol.
