Your safest bet is to call Redline Oil at (707)745-6100 . Ask for Dave-if I remember correctly-their technical advisor and pose this question to him. http://www.redlineoil.com/contact.htmgreer said:I 'm going to change the manual transmission lubricant on my car but should I go with: Redline MT-90 or Redline MTL? I drive the 3.5 SE, and how much do I need? Thank you for your help.

Using a light transmission fluid will result in a much smoother feel from the transmission, but it doesn't always provide enough protection.
BG Synchro Shift and Redline MTL 90 both use larger chain molecules and friction modifiers than typical gear oils. It will work wonders.
