Has anyone else tried the Pennzoil sychromesh besides rice_classic? Any reviews? Not that I dont trust them but I like the to have a sample size of more than just one, and when I google/search it shows posts from them from 2012 running the same fluid, so I guess thats a good thing XD.

Another for Redline. I had issues upshifting from first into second gear and downshifting from fifth into fourth gear. Ever since I switched to redline, I have had zero issues.

Is that the redline 50:50?

Was literally just looking for it on CSG. I think motul is too much for the PNW weather. It takes forever to heat up

This reminds me: I put Redline MT-90 in my '14 about four years ago.

It initially had a bit of grind when going into second cold but was fine warmed up. Now (after four years) it seems to be perfecto in all weather.

It only took four years.

I just switched to it and so far Iím impressed. Itís available locally for $9/qt. Itís less notchy than before the swap and if I recall itís the smoothest itís ever been.

I had your same problem except with the OEM fluid. Once I switched to Redline, I had no issues. Glad you fixed your problem.

Another vote for Redline. Changed to it from factory oil and it made the transmission feel buttery smooth. I stopped using their engine oil because it is so expensive and I prefer to change at least twice a year, but trans and diff oil is worth it.

In reality just about anything is better than the OEM fluid.
