    Update

    So it has been around another 15k miles. This time on the Subaru Extra S....and I like it just as BIGSKY said I would. Seems to work just as well as any concoction I have tried thus far. Luckily my tuner sells it by the quart so I have an available source for it.

    So if you want a good fluid that is factory warranty compatible, go with the Extra S.

    If you can't get the Extra S, I still recommend the Amsoil syncromesh blend.

    ^ good deal nice that you can find it by the quart, SOA would make some $ if they would package it by the quart

    Great info, tons of interesting data.
    Any more updates for the last few month?
    I read every page of this thread, didn't skip a single one.
    I agree with people hence it's hard to make a decision on what gear oil to use in my 2006 Impreza.
    I have had great success with Red Line oil 75W90 NS in my 1987 heavy modified Toyota Supra for over 10 years, but seems it's not a good choice for 5 speed WRX.
    What I gather from here and made decision for myself, unless some one update the thread after my posting with more data:
    Choice # 1 Subaru extra S (any one has 4 quarts to sell, or point reliable place were I can order, I try not to buy whole drum?)
    I am in North Jersey.
    Choice # 2 Motul 300
    Choice # 3 Redline Lightweight Shockproof
    A little off topic, I have spare Red Line 75W90 full syntetic and it 10 y old, never open, I will use for rear differential. I belive closed quart of oil will not degrade during this time on the shelf in my garage. We shell see

    This is an excellent question to pose to Redline themselves. I'd contact customer service before using it. I do not know if any component has fallen out of solution or if any component is not stable long term. Since it was sealed I don't think moisture is a concern, but I have no idea what's in the oil -- Redline do though. You might even email if you don't want to call. Just a thought.

    Thanks for reply and good suggestion SD (I hope I know your first name ).
    Yeah, I did sent them (Red Line Co. ) e-mail earlier today, no answer yet. If they do respond, I will post it here.
    Do you think my choices regarding trany oil are good? Or you would do different?

    I've given up on oils fancier or rarer than plain-old Valvoline 75W-90. It's what my dealer used last I checked, from large drums bought in bulk. I'd use Extra S too. In fact my preferences would be Extra S, Valvoline regular, any other regular in that order I guess. My car shifts as well as it did when new as far as I can tell. I don't see any cold weather though so can't comment on winter.

    My gearing box never been too friendly, even right after the first miles. Need to adjust rpm to do it smoothly, European double shift, lol, j/k.
    I imagine it is basic OEM oil there now, since it's been replace in the dealership in my absence. This time around I have chance to do it myself and hopefully put better stuff in there. Appreciate for sharing your thoughts SD. I may change my mind, he he and try.

    +1 Extra-S

    I went with the extra s in my tranny and redline 75/90 in my diff for my 09 WRX. It had 20k miles when I made the switch. Shifting into reverse is definitely better. 3rd still feels notchy but is improved. Can't notice any difference with the rear diff. Overall really happy with this setup, its been about 1k miles so far.

    check out your local dealership, you can get it pretty cheap there too. You just need your own container.
