Well nice to see this thread still exist lol. I also want to change what I said earlier about the gear oil. I'm doing a clutch job on a Mini Cooper S which has the same getrag trans as the SVT but the housing is different specifically the bell housing side. Well after some researching and finding out that all the Mini guys use Redline MTL synthetic transmission fluid to replace the factory fluid. It is has a GL-4 rating instead of the GL-5 rating which the Mini's Getrags says it must use a GL-4 fluid only so that's what I'm going to use for the Mini's Getrag. I went back to the dealer and got some of the "Ford Honey" we know so well for my SVT. So just wanted to update on the little bit of info on our what our Getrag brothers use.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
