Tremec 3650 fluid

Ordered MGW Shifter and custom shift knob last night. So I decided to sent an email to Tremec to see what they prefer to use fluid wise. Pennzoil Synchromesh or Mobil 1 ATF. And they told me to use Mobil 1 ATF. Been googling and cliffy recommended mobil 1 atf. So I'm going to try mobil 1 with this car. My old gt I used Pennzoil and it was great.

I also used Mobil 1 on Cliffys and Tremecs advice.
Shifts great! No complaints.

I put the Pennzoil Synchromesh in main about a month ago and I like Mobile 1 ATF synthetic better. Just feels smoother in all conditions compared to the Pennzoil IMO.

Bought Mobil 1. Waiting for Monday for my shifter to come in. Will update how it shifts. Only problem i have currently is randomly going to reverse is a pain but 1 2 3 4 5 is fine.

I actually thinking about switching back before winter comes. I change mine once a year. I was expecting the Pennzoil to be better. Kinda bummed lol.

Got the MGW Shifter installed. Feels great! Used Mobil 1 ATF and it's smooth. Still have that Reverse problem. Not sure if it's normal for the 3650. Have to put it in any other gear and then it will go in Reverse. Other than that it's great so far. Will post pictures tomorrow when I get my new knob.

Got it off eBay. Something different. Was looking for a dragon ball but couldn't find the size.

Finally hit 100K miles. So was a good time to do the short throw. New trans fluid and oil change.
