Gordon: Just installed the t-5 that Travis re-built. We have the tranny oil that came in the shipment, we lost page from Travis on what to use to fill rest of tranny reservoir with. What should I use?

Doug, he has one of my super alloy T5's. It takes a mix of 1 qt synthetic gear oil and 2 qts synthetic ATF. I prefer using Synergyn oils.
Travis probably sent 1 qt of Synergear II. Use it and mix it with 2 qts synthetic ATF and put 2.75 qts in the trans.

Bill, thanks for posting. My friend, who rebuilt my T5, is the service manager for a local Ford dealership recommended the ATF fluid It has worked good for 8000+ miles so far but now I need to reassess his recommendation.
Tim, If your transmission requires the oil Gordon recommends, use it. he knows what should be used.
