It's not the older style 80W-90, etc. 'gear oil' that you would use in an older trans or rear end. It's Mercon V full synthetic. It's not really labeled by viscosity (or weight.)

Your best off just going with the Ford Full Synthetic that Ford calls for

That's all I run in my SVTF (change it annually) and it's all I ran in my SVTC that I owned for 4 years with no troubles what so ever.

Amsoil Synthetic MTF is great fluid as well.

I swapped to the Royal Purple after about 10,000 miles....just changed it for the 3rd time and i'm at 148,000 with no issues....

I'm not talking about a specific brand name - I'm talking about a specified rating for the Getrag 6 speed.

Fully synthetic Mercon V (rated) is absolutely what is listed in the manual and factory/dealership service CD.
