    This will open a huge can of worms...

    I debated all summer what to use in my 6 speed. I really like the idea of synthetic fluids, but in the long run just decided to use the good old atf stuff they recommend. I figured why let that be an issue if my tranny ever goes out. I am confident the fluid won't break it now. That is my recommendation-check the owners manual and use what they say, but do as you please. Goodluck!

    Dextron III here as well unless heat build up is an issue then I usually go with RP syncromax fluid . Amsoil and Redline both have some decent stuff too ......
