2006, 2007 owners q on tranny oil

Just wondering, do any of you 06, 07 owners run uncle scotty's cocktail? Upon reading i noticed ALOT, maybe 75% of the people running this mix are all 2002, 2003 models. Just wondering if any of you noticed a difference

a lot of people with subbies do in general but then i have talked to other people who swear by oem fluids such as me (minus engine oil) so it does vary. try it out and if you dont like it switch back

have u heard any 06 or 07 owners try it out? reason why im asking is because i know the 06 and 07 tranny take a little more abuse than the older ones due to the final drive.

I would run Royal Purple Maxgear 75W-90 if you want to switch it up.Easy to find in stores,don't need to mix it with anything and it's good stuff.

Doesn't really matter at this point.The only reason people were running that is because of having problems with getting into 1st on a roll.Thats why you see so many 02-03 running that mix because in 04+ used a different gearset.

Do you have issues getting into 1st from a roll? IF yes then try the mixture. I my self just swapped over ta a synth gear oil and called it good on my 04.

no it shifts fine, the reason why i want to put a new mixture is mainly to keep my tranny intact for the abuse it takes by me, i dont drive stupid, i dont dump my clutch from a dig or when i shift, i slip my clutch just enough to keep my car bouncing and jerking and all that bad stuff. I only drive it hard maybe once or twice a day for maybe 2 or 3 shifts, just enough to give me a smile on the way home

uncle scotty's cocktail to me seems like a farce. i have a 06 with 12k. VF39 'd and running redline 75w-90 ns with no shift problems cold or hot .. just my 2 cents

hmm do you think running full 75w90ns with 1 qt lightweight shockproof would be harmful?
