He guys I'm going this Friday to a local shop to pick up Redline Manual Tranny Fluid. I need to know what kind is used for Type R's? My car gives me light scratches every once in a while in 2nd
and 4th and I figured since II'm almost to the 30,000 mile mark it's time to change it. Thanks!

Heard really good things about BG Syncroshift. Very noticeable difference, gears shift much smoother even when engine is still "cold". I think it goes for around $40 for 3 quarts. Highly, recommended. I am going with that when I change my tranny fluid.

Yeah, I've also heard good things about BG Syncroshift. Although it is hard to find. Hell, Redline is hard to find. I just bought it, I'm probably doing this or next wednesday. I guess we'll see how it feels.

I think the BG Synchroshift goes for about $30 for 3 quarts. I'm sure Redline is good stuff. Good luck and let us know how it works.

Wassup?

Well, I changed my tranny fluid to Redline Sae 10w-30 Motor Oil, which is what they had in a local speed shop. We changed it out and it gave an improvement in the shifting feel. It used to grind a little into second gear and now it does it less and not as harsh. The shifting also feels smoother. Overall I say it was worth it even though it wasn't an extreme improvement it still is something.

use redline MTL. I have it in my R and it improves shifting, contrary to what you might have heard. I like it... recommend you try it and see for yourself. Honda MTF is good stuff too, but it's not a full synthetic, I think.
