I'm thinking about ditching my USC ****tail after all the horrible crap I'm reading about it.... even though it fixed my 3-4 gear grind that I had for over a year (full Redline 75w90 didn't cure it).
    yea man, i just sold my gsr integra and bought this wrx, while the wrx is a overall better car, much funner, feels like its on rails, more hp ect.. it feels like a cheaper car. the shifter just feels funny and really notchy.

    i had gm syncromesh friction modified, quality short shifter, and shifter bushing in my gsr and it was like so firm and smooth. hope i can get the same feel in this car.

    Oh yea, do you know if it's the stock shifter and bushings on your WRX? I can't stand the stock slop. I know exactly what you're talking about. I went with the Cobb double adjustable short shifter and Cobb front and rear shifter bushings on my car and I absolutely love it. I will never be without a short shifter in a car ever again if it can be helped. When I drive stock shifter cars, it feels like I'm rowing a boat just to shift!

    Look in the Cobb short shifter or the Kartboy. Both are quality and you won't be disappointed. Make sure you get the bushings too though.

    And if you want even crisper feeling shifts, look into some bushings...a "clunk killer" kit (Turn In Concepts for example) or some Whiteline bushings like I have. Check my link in my sig.

    I was looking at the kartboy shifter, dont really think i would make use of the cobb adjustments. kinda broke atm but im def going to order some bushings tomarrow. which do you think would be best? im just looking for a firm shift... no rowboat effect like you said.. also i seen you are from denver? what part? i grewup on like 18th and hooker. right by the old broncos stadium.

    That's cool man I certainly like Denver. Just moved back after about 4 years away. I'm in Littleton now, but I've lived all over the place.

    It looks like the Cobb bushings are the same price as the Kartboy bushings, so it's up to you. I personally like the blue color Both are quality products though.

    Redline LW shockproof and 75W90NS

    Well I finally switched out my tranny oil with 20,600 miles on it. I used the Redline LW and 7590 NS mix in it and was still workign fine at 20 plus. Sending in the oil samples (one new one 20.5K) to be analyzed and hopefully should haev results within a weke or so depending on how quick the USPS is.

    On a positive note I took a pick of the oil samples at about 36 hours of sitting time and even now 3 days past NO oil separation, which some on NASIOC found with the USC.

    Attached some pics as well.

    I mixed 2x redline lw and 1.7x amsol sev gear in a 1gallon jug, its been sitting there for 2 days. and its starting to seperate.

    kinda scares me, not sure if this would cause problems later on?

    btw this stuff is so thick compared to honda mt fluid lol.

    Blackstone Results

    Well here is my blackstone results for my fluid. Again it was a mix of 2 Qts LW shockproof and 1.7 of Redline 75w90 NS. I took a brand new sample as well as one with 20.5k miles on it.

    Unfortunately the results were not what I had hoped for Iron and Silicone was high in it. Viscosity was slightly high and flashpoint slightly low but not insanely far off.

    Also my car was bought used with 38K on it initially so no idea if the tranny was abused before hand.

    I have an 06 WRX with 43000 miles, 5th gear has developed a light grind and I was planning on changing my tranny fluid and diff fluid hoping to ease the issue. Now thats why im in this thread, I need advice on mixture. I live in san antonio texas and its been in the 100s here during the day, but in the winter mornings its in the 30s. What do you guys recommend I put in my tranny? and the diff?

    Blackstone results:

    The missing part of the equation ofcourse, is what levels a clean 0 miles sample would yield.

    Had you read the whole thread? I think you could gather a very knowledgeable place to start from reading the thread. Guessing that you're still under warranty until 60k, I would try to stick with something like the Subaru Extra S tranny fluid...

    Not to mention if he's having a grind in 5th, that is usually a mechanical problem/failure of some sort. I would seriously bring that into the dealer and if it's under warranty have them fix that before goign a fluid mixture route.

    Not sure what you mean by a 0 miles sample? I have a new sample straight out of the bottles vs a sample thats bene in the tranny for 20.5k.

    Unless you mean dumping the mix into the car's tranny and immediately taking a sample from that.

    Unless your manual transmission has a filter in it of course those numbers are going to be high. Unlike your engine or an automatic transmission there is no filter on a manual transmission. I would be looking more a shear weight. Also all these people make up these tranny concoctions seem to forget the two differentials in the transmission as well. Thats why you have to use a GL-5 rated gear oil. Just because USC makes your tranny "feel" better doesn't mean over the long run it could cause premature wear and damage to the differentials.
