Best fluid for t5?

I have castrol mercon v in it and it seems like third is grinding for no reason with the clutch in. Only up shifting into third no other time. I'm hopeing a better fluid will fix this.

Did you just change it recently? Believe it or not the T5 is not to picky about fluid unlike the TKO's.

Freshly rebuilt from some guy off the coral, was awesome the first couple days. I have been babying it and just the past 2 days thirsds synchro is like no way man. So it has mercon v in it from the get go and I was wondering what's the best stuff to put in to fix this problem. It's also has carbon fiber syncros

Lol do you say so that because you had the same problem in the past, or do you think it will help me. It's like $15 a quart so I don't want to regret it

I didn't mean to put it twice lol but no I haven't had the problem but everybody that has grinding gears or shifting into is tough they use syncromesh and say it was the best decision. Do some research on some great fluids and choose from there
