Redline Transmission Oil
Posted 25 September 2003 - 04:07 PM
Having only done about 6 miles with the new oil, I can't make any final conclusions but there is a slightly more soft/damped sensation to the way the gearstick slots home. Also, the whirring noise I had on the overrun in third has dissappeared, which speaks highly for the film strength of Redline.
The difference in shiftability is only slight, at this stage, but I expect that anyone making the change from a mineral oil to synthetic would be very impressed by Redline NS.
I have been through Castrol and Mobil, both mineral and synthetic, so I reckon I have experience enough to make a fair judgement.
Pianodirt, I would recommend forking out the extra money for Redline. You won't be disappointed.
Sprintman, my gearbox has 185K miles on it, so age shouldn't be important.

Bear in mind that Subarus have always had a notchy 2nd to 3rd shift.
Not savvy on the older Subes: Do you have direct rod link to the 'box? Cables tend to mask notchiness, while a rod allows you to feel every synchro tooth mesh into the cogs, just the way I like it

absolutely love the stuff.
nobody's gonna convince me to swap to anything else.
Redline all the way.

(I use the excess to "flush" the box before filling.)
SubieGal, have you tried NS? Can you "compare and contrast" NS and Shockproof?
Shift speed, cold performance, that sort of thing..
