So I figured I'd make a poll for this, see what most people prefer and their feedback on specific gear oils for the 5MT.

Right now I'm using Valvoline SynPower Synthetic 75W90 in my newish 2000 Impreza RS tranny in my Subaru Outback.

Tell us what you use and recommend and stay away from.

I use Redline 75w90NS, transmission feels great! I'd recommend it.

Although, haven't tried anything else besides what the car came with - so nothing to compare it to.

I clicked other because I also wanted to know what ppl thought and i dont really want to recommend anything scince i'm quite a noob.
Altho i've heard in other threads on this forum that "Extra S" from the subaru dealer was good.

Castrol Syntec 75W90 in both of the 02 WRX gearboxes I've run. No complaints during the summer or some of the Canadian winters they've seen (although -50C/-58F was a bit thick)

Swepco 201. More BMW, Audi, Porsche and Ferrari owners and mechanics trust it. It meets all the specifications... and well it just does a damn fine job in my trannys.

cheers
