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.

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.
