Hello all,

     After I did a five speed (Getrag) conversion I started running with 75-90 weight lube but found the shift up to second could be a little crunchy at times.  I am now trying 20-50 and shift up to 2nd is fine but down to first requires incredible timing to get right without grinding.  20-50, I'm sure to nobody's surprise, is a little louder.  Has anybody had good luck with different weights/synthetics/additives etc in keeping the Getrag happy with a long life?
