    Cool Changed tranny and diff to REDLINE Super Mix... SWEET MOD ! ! !

    Hi all,

    I keep reading about tranny's blowing up and I wanna make sure this doesnt happen to me so i went ahead and changed my oil early.

    I changed it at 40000km VS. 72 000 as per dealer recommendations ( im in canada )

    I was informed from a local Suby Gura about his special mix and love it .... (thanks derek)

    Shifting is MUCH smoother and less notchy...

    Also both of my oils were VERY dirty esp my rear diff... glad i didnt wait till 72 k

    Here it is enjoy


    1 Bottle of Redline ShockProof Lightweight
    3 Bottles of Redline 75W90NS

    Rear Diff - 1 Bottle of Redline Shockproof Heavy

    I asked the same question in a different thread a day or two ago and the concensus seemed to be if you drive your car hard the only disadvantage might be cost. I have 17,000 miles on my car so far and plan on changing out the tranny fluid and rear diff here pretty soon.

    What oils did all you guys use? I'm hearing great things about the redline stuff but its also pretty expensive considering you can buy 75w90 for 2 dollars a quart at the auto parts store.

    I found a pretty good DIY article:
    http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1743

    What's the difference between 75w90 and 75w90ns? And what other fluids are people running? Sorry for so many questions but I want to know exactly what I'm buying before I spend 40 bucks on a fluid change.

    Ok i'm SOOOO confused right now. I plan on changing all the oils in my 05 STi this thursday. I'm going with mobile 1 5W30 after 3500 miles that's not really an area of confusion for me, however, the tranny and rear diff are. I'm thinking about putting Mobile 1 Synthetic 75W90 in the tranny and the same in the rear diff. Now i've heard bad things about synthetics in the tranny do you guys agree? Most of my driving is just around town with the occasional launch (maybe 4-5 times a month at most). I plan on drag racing occasionally (1 time a month or so). Would the mobile be fine for that? Would it give me shifting issues because it's too slippery for the syncros? Should i just go with dino 75W90 oil? HELP!!! Thanks guys. And if i've missed a post about this i appologize and could you direct me to it.

    Just noticed you're in Minnesota. Might be a bit cold for the HD shockproof unless you cut it down with a lighter redline oil. My buddy just tore his tranny down out of his bronco and that lube was just hanging off every component inside. Sticky stuff. Good lube

    Hmmmm so can in addition can i take that to mean you're pro synthetic? At least as far as the syncros go.

    I am just from my own personal experience. Some say there's no difference if you stay up on your service intervals but you can extend that with synthetics. Then there's the cost offset argument.
    I had more syncro conflict with the subie lube. The HD smoothed it all out it seems. I like it.
