How much does it leak?

If your rear main seal is toast and the check valve going to the PCV nipple is bad pressure from the turbo into the crankcase will blow oil out the seals when you're accelerating.

Could also be input shaft seal @ the transmission.

how does used motor oil get into your transmission? This is how it sounds to me when I read it.

If you are leaking motor oil from where the trans and the engine are mated - there is a GOOD change it's the rear main seal, however I would look into all other options first to ensure things are hooked up and working as they are intended so that there isn't excessive pressure forcing the leak.

That aside - if it's gear oil, it can be dealt with very easily. 1 Gallon of gear oil and top off as needed. This is how my 87' 9000 was - went though 1 gallon every 3 months. The fluid was a clean as it ever could be - and I knew it needed fluid when first and second gear needed a little effort to engage :) Aside from that you can run a 9000 gearbox on pretty much no gear oil and get around - previous owner of my 87' must have done this for months if not years.... gears all worked perfect and never popped out either.

n/a will have much shorter gear ratios so if you use it the acceleration will be faster but kiss your highway mpg's good by
