They LIE!  Actually, they probably don't understand squat about 
synthetics...so they bad-mouth what they don't understand.  
Synthetics are much superior to standard gear oil.  Amsoil is good, 
Red Line is even better - but harder to find.   Ask around at 
performance-oriented shops and make sure to get the CORRECT 
oils for your trannys.  In the manual, the tranny gear oil is NOT the 
same as that used for rear ends in RWD cars.  Again, make sure to get 
the correct stuff.  You will like it a lot, and you will likely feel 
improved shifting in your manual.
