I used Redline MTL for my IS300, it solved my 4th gear pop problem. Didn't solve the W55 clunky-ness though. =(

sorry to revive such an old thread, but I'm just wondering if the AMSoil 5w-30 MTF worked out for you Mugen? Its nearing summer time and my car (same as mugen's) needs an oil change and lately 2nd has been hard to get into and 3rd sometimes pops out as well. Do you recommend getting the AMSoil MTF?

i have noticed that the only time 3rd pops out is if i release the clutch before going fully into gear, or when wheel hopping.

as for the second gear grind, it some how disappeared a while ago.

i use redline MTL.

if you drive an Acura, try Honda's "New" MTF...

it's so much better than normal Honda MTF.

it's available in Canada now and should be able to buy one from dealership

I had an 8thgen si with the dreaded 3rd gear popout/grind whatever...

after i put in amsoil MTF.... the shifts were significantly more buttery smooth and no longer experienced the 3rd gear popout and grinded 99% less.

i do a drain fill for every 3 oil change to keep the shifts buttery smooth.

if you want maximum effect... get a shop to suck out the tranny and lsd dry. then fill it back up completely with amsoil.
