I use Royal Purple Syncromax in my SVTF. It shifts completely different since the change over, which was about 15k miles ago. Shifts nice and smooth! I've used RP products in the past, and I like them. I would find an auto parts store locally and see if they carry RP, and ask them what weight you would need to use with your application.

Use the "search" button, but anything that is Mercon 5 or equivalent.

I use Amsoil Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid.
It's approved for Ford MERCON®, MERCON® V & SP

It's about $5-6 a quart if you can find it locally.
I think you'll need at least 4 to 5 quarts.
