For anyone playing along at home make sure you read the warnings on the bottle before buying, especially the superlight shockproof oil! If it overheats it crystallises and isn't really crash hot for a synchromesh gearbox anyway.

My circuit Z ran standard diff oil in a locked R180, was only changed when the diff was welded up and no problems for 10 years or so
Gearbox oil was a good quality standard oil, no need for fancy smurf's blood stuff. Again only changed when the gearbox was pulled out, so three times in 15 years, and again apart from the usual stuffed synchro on 2nd I had no gearbox pproblems, especially if yoou take your time on the changes, thay are old gearboxes that can't be smashed through the gears.
The only fancy oil I used was Goe Gibbs Driven for the motor and it was changed every second event with a standard filter.

I doubt it would make a difference if your gearbox feels fine already, but if it feels bad enough that you're saving for a new one, then it might prolong the inevitable for quite some time. I hear the WRX guys use it a lot too.. And you know what they say about WRX boxes.

Getting better results both in use and teardown.
Not a low cost product.
If anyone in Brisbane is after bottles of Redline, i can supply
Quarts and bulk pack.

We need higher zinc levels than modern spec oils provide.
6k-8k ppm is good, EPA dont like it.
Some older Penzzoils

Do you put 1.5L in or 2L ?The service book says 1.5, but elsewhere i read 2L. is 2L a problem or is this a strict thing? looking for maximum protection (least wear)?
Its hard also as i do it on ramps so you need to keep an eye on the bottle level to know how much you put in. and no dipstick from what i can see.
