I personally run redline mt90 in my ax15, and recommend it to everyone else who is doing a fluid change on an ax15

No wonder why mine shifts like a horse and dads is like butter. Lol il stick to what it says in my manual. Hopefully il get it to shift a little easier. What makes the nv3550 so much better than the ax-15?

I wouldn't say its better really, they have almost the same torque rating as the ax15.. if you have an ax15 don't run non yellow metal safe gl5, it will over time eat away at your synchronizers, and then you're looking at a grand for a new one unless you can rebuild a transmission

Idk, check on their website, they have a store locator, the ax15 requires 3.25 quarts so you'll be buying 4qts, I think I spent around 70-80 on all 4qts

Redline mt90 is a gl4, which is what the ax15 requires, regardless of what your manual says, manuals are not always correct, and you can find other places on this forum and others to use a gl4 or yellow metal safe gl5 lube in them
