I used redline D6ATF. Yes ATF in a MT, for this brand anyway. No issues

Buy 3 liters. Redline d6atf is good. I replaced with d4atf. Others have used redline mtf. All are fine, some are preferred over others in certain climates.

Redline MTL. Better lubrication at a cost of less cooperative shifting until it warms up on cold mornings. Approx 1.6 qts.
