If you want redline for the trany it is a synthetic but thats all i use so i am going to recommend it. You will feel a difference in shifting. much much smoother thumbsup thumbsup As far an the engine goes i also use redline wich is a synthetic but i heard lost of good things about Castrol. Hope this helps. wave wave

It's not true! You can use regular oil and switch your tranny oil to synthetic.
