Thanks man, i just did that and it seems most of the Celica owners are on that forum, great info there :)

And i thought they were saying for synchromesh gearboxes we sould be using GL4 grade oil as "GL5 can reduce synchro life by one-half" - Redline's comments. ??? :unsure:

btw i am using Castrol Syntrax 75W90 GL5 atm and i have recently ordered Redline MT90 GL4.

yeh i don't think GL5 is all that bad, its actually really good for protecting the gears themselves but maybe with synchros GL4 oils just do a better job, i think GL5 is good with gearboxes that have no problems and GL4 is better for gearboxes with a little bit of shifting problems. That's my assumption ;)
