tranny fluid for a wrx.. synthetic good or bad?

ok so im changing my fluids and i did some research on it and everyone on nasioc likes uncle scottys ****tail.. i was thinking of doing that then i looked up amsoil since im ordering some oil i looked at their gear fluid.. now if their oil is so good wouldnt their trans fluid be good too.. but only problem is its all synthetic. i heard not to use synthetic in the suby trans cuz it wont run right and will mess it up.. is this true or can i use synthetic im my trans.. i need to know before i order this soon.. thanks guys.. i will be using the severe gear 75w90 fluid..

I'm not sure if you have ever heard of this, but it is called GM Syncromesh. You can go to any GM dealer and pick this up. It is a little expensive, about $10 a bottle, but is well worth the investment. I put two bottles of this and two bottles of 80w-90 synthetic gear oil in my transmission after my clutch/flywheel install. Gear shifts are much smoother and putting the car in first gear isn't as tight as it once was.

Here check this link out http://www.i-club.com/forums/showthr...ght=syncromesh

When I had my clutch installed I had my fluids changed out. Super Blue for the tranny and Royal Purple for the diffs. and I couldn't be happier.

i agree, redline in incredible. my 4th gear synchro grinded, i changed the tranny fluid to redline and it worked perfectly, the only thing since it is soo thick it takes a little bit longer to warm up, other than that it is great

Yeah the blue stuff got rid of my fourth gear grind too, it's a wonderful thing to be able to shift into fourth and not cringe lol.

I'm using Mobil1, and with my WRX at 105,000 miles the trans still feels great.
