I have Redline MTL in my tranny now and it shifts easier than before, but MTL is very thin also, much like ATF. My tranny makes more noise than before, so I'm switching to a thicker oil. I'll just wait until the car is warm before trying to shift fast.

I'm still looking for a thicker oil. I've heard of people running engine oil in the their manual transmissions 10-40w any thoughts? or experiences. I am going this route next, unless the board says it will ruin the transmission.
