    Manual Transmission Fluid Brands

    Not much info on what brand owners are running in their transmission, so I thought I would start a thread.
    Other than ford brand, I am thinking of the Tremec HP-MTF, seems logical to go with what the manufacturer of transmission sells.

    What brand of fluid (oil) are you using
    pros cons you have noticed
    what made you decide to go with that brand
    any particular brand that will keep temps down better than another brand
    a list of brands approved for the TR-3160
    any other knowledge you would like to share on MTF

    Cheers, keep it shiny side up

    Just ran across this thread. I am using Amsoil ATL because it meets the LV spec. The issue you'll run into is finding something that meets this, and none of the syncromesh fluids will. I even reached out to Tremec, and they will not recommend their fluid for this tranny. They told me to follow the manufacturers recommendation. Now, obviously they have to do that for legal/liability reasons. That's not to say that fluid won't be exceptionally well for this tranny. I know a few guys, one in particular on another forum, that swears by the Royal Purple syncro tranny fluid, and says it's the best he's had in this tranny.
