    automatic or manual?

    When you say transmission fluid, usually what comes to mind that you have an automatic transmission.

    gear oil = manual transmission.

    Opinions vary, and there are several threads with dozens of posts each tossing ideas back and forth about the best gear oil.

    Some vendor sites also have info; the Cobb site in particular has an entire section dedicated to this.

    Keep in mind that "best" isn't a fixed term, and that's part of the problem. Best feel, best synchro protection, best gearset protection, or?

    The safest thing to do is to either use the works fluid (in which case you'll be no worse off than you were) or get a consensus of opinions from people in *your* area (same climate, same traffic conditions, same use patterns etc.) and try out what they use.

    Sorry to be vague but there's so many answers, there's no one answer.
