Default Synthetic Oil In 6spd Manual Transmission?

It OK to use? I've always been a fan of synthetic oils, would like to put Mobil 1 in the transaxle...

I suppose you can but for Transmission Fluid... I would only stick with OEM Nissan Fluid. Its your safest and best bet.

Yeah Amsoil is commonly used now a days. I would only use it for Motor Oil though.

For Transmission... I would stick with Nissan OEM.
