I replaced trans fluid with SynchroMax 3 weeks ago. I noticed a difference immediately; it shifts way smoother, like a knife in butter versus a stick in sand

I hate to say it, but it sounds like it got cross threaded.
You'll have to pop the plug out to be sure.

Yeah, this how-to is inspiring. I will have to do this really soon.. I have not been happy with the shift effort lately and know that this definitely needs to be done on my car (129K) since I know for a fact that it has never been done.

I believe Ford makes a Fully Synthetic Manual Transmission fluid specifically for the get-ragged. its like $27 a quart, and most dealers will look at you all crazy eyed when you ask about it. they usually have to order it.
