2 quarts are needed for the trans. I'm running GM Syncromesh friction modified. Use to have a Problem with third gear in the morning, Not anymore after i use the synchromesh. Mines is also a 02 type s trans without the recall done on it.

I never used the GM syncromesh but i can vouch for the redline MTL.The tranny shifted and engaged alot smoother then over the stock fluid.I changed the fluid around 10,000 and after 20,000 miles i havent had a noise or grind ever since :up: I can rip my gearbox without having to worry about it grinding hehe :up:

i really haven't tried to shift my car from first to 2nd after vtec point i guess i'm just scared to mess it up so i haven't tried how it engaged in vtec mode; but the other gears seem to work good after the car is warmed up. and yea my second is lil hard to get in at night. when its cold somtime i have to double clutch get it in or let rpm drop all the way then put it in gear.
i think i will try redline mtl ,any online place to buy you know of??
