75w90 GL4 or GL5 gear oil, or Redline 75w95NS oil (NOT REDLINE 75w90)!!
Just make sure that it's good for syncros.

Also, I have looked everywhere for Redline and havn't found it. Let me know if and where you do.

u can use redline 75w90, i use it, just make sure its fully synthetic thumbsup.

many places sell red line... check online stores or call keystone distributors or go to redlines web site.

How often do you need to change your transmission oil? Is it something a shop needs to do, or can it be a DIY maintenance?

Redline MT90 thumbsup

the 'normal' change interval i think is every 30,000...

you can do it yourself... much like an oil change, its under the left engine plastics... just get a funnel and about 2 ft of hose...
