Not available here.

If you have MTL without issues please tell us if it feels different with royal purple.

This is interesting. I have used MTL and flushed it 3 times in 2 years. it feels good the first month or so then it seems to get back to how it was. my gears are fine, but 1st is a bit hard to get into at a stop. I may switch it to Syncromax and do a test.

MTL is a lot better. It has a much better viscosity range. MTF94 is a fairly low quality MTF...

Hmm the syncromax wasnt as "slick" as the redline, When I drained it there was some sludge on the magnet very few shavings. Im gonna go back to the Redline eventually. Syncromax tastes a little better. It seems a little more "notchy" now I drove it long enough for it to have time to warm up. Verdict is still out..

MTL is impossible to find in San Antonio, and this isn't exactly a small town.

Syncromax is available at my local O'Reilly and I'm headed there now.

What is the latest feedback on the MTL vs. Royal Purple Sychromax? Those that have switched to Synchromax still loving it?
