I did do a big post on GTR Life on this as a long term test on my new 2011 car until I sold it 2.5 years and 8000k track miles later, I also ran the Willall on my 2010 GT-R. I ran full oil analysis at least one per year to confirm the TML was still fully serviceable.

I don't want to really get too deep into this as I currently don't run a GT-R but I still believe the Willall TML the best option for these reasons:

1) Vastly superior heat handling capabilities, I ran my tranny temps on occasion to 138c and the oil did not suffer (still swapped my diff oils out afterward though), the TML oil appears to be indestructible at the temps we can generate in a GR6 tranny.

2) Never having to worry about the tranny temps was a big plus for me with the many trackdays I did in those 2.5 years.

3) Quieter gearshift operation mainly due to the thicker oil cushioning the selection process.

4) Nothing better has come along!

Thanks as always - super helpful.

I've not been on GTRLife - will check it out and find your thread. But the mantra still applies...if it's good enough for you....

Transmission oil change with WillAll WR35TML @ 1238 Miles - Transmission & Drivetrain - GT-R Life

Hope the link works OK, the pictures have gone now as the hosting service starting charging and the links stopped working.

If the link does not work the subject is "Transmission oil change with WillAll WR35TML @ 1238 Miles"

My handle on GTR Life was/is Storm

Very nice..... I have a soft spot for them going back to the 8L S3 hence the username. I currently have a low mileage 306 gti6 I'm ruining which I hope to get up to Knockhill next year. Problem is it's too nice!
