Was gonna use And oil GL5, chickened out and bought ST GL5 75/90. Is there gonna be a significant drop off in shift quality?

Once your vehicle senses you considered splurging with Amsoil then retreated to Wallmart, it'll explode your transmission when you least expect it.

In a WRX I bought new and sold with 136K on it, I put in Supertech semi synthetic 75W90 in the manual transmission early in it's life and stuck with that gear oil throughout me owning it. I chose it because it is a rare gear oil not intended to service limited slip differentials. You don't want the most slippery oil in a manual transmission. It provided me very good shift quality. It gets good reviews in the Subaru community.

MY fluid? I thought you meant a blood transfusion or something. Glad to hear it's only stinky gear oil.

only ever used ATF in any manual I've owned.

but I've used Supertech gear oil in several vehicles, no issues


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

I think he is referring to his "precious bodily fluids" Leo. Probably watched "Dr. Strangelove" last night. I believe the term is from a Brig General Jack Ripper line.
