As I understand it, yes, that's correct. The MT-90 is a heavier lubricant
than the MTL. I have it in my 5KCSTQ and like it works very well. The
transmission demands no extra attention during shifting and feels as

I was a little concerned at the beginning because I live in Chicago and
was worried about its performance at low temps., but so far it hasn't
been a problem. If anything, the tranmission shifts better when it's really
cold outside than before...shouldn't be powershifting it anyway when
the steering is still sluggish from the cold (the computer tries to prevent it
