You sure it specs a GL5 lube? Amsoil is saying GL4 75W90 for the W55 6 speed. GL5 lubes typically suck in manual transmissions.

Awesome car BTW. Me? I would use Redline 75W90 NS GL-5 Gear Oil. Why? Redline states it helps to slow synchros for easier shifting across a broad temperature range. That is exactly what you want in a manual transmission. Redline doesn't cheap out on the base oil in their products.
