If you are using the Mobil 1 in your tranny, I have heard that it is not good since it contains sulfur. Sulfur is not good to our trannies! I have heard good things about the Redline though.

Definitely get the Mobil 1 gear lube out, it is designed for rear end differentials not transmitions. Mobil will tell you specifically not to use it in transmitions, it will eventually eat the brass in the synchros up and cost you a transmition.:(

There are a few of you using bad fluids and filters in your cars. Unfortunately our cars HLA's make for some pretty picky tastes. Search the probetalk site for "oil" "oil filter" & "tranny fluid" and you'll find out what to use and what not to use.

I run Mobil 1 synthetic
Redline MTL tranny fluid
and a geniune Mazda oil filter
