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.

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...
