TREMEC Manual Transmission Fluid

Now that’s slick!
Engineered for use in aftermarket manual transmissions

We get this question all the time: “What kind of oil do you guys recommend?”

For better fuel economy, smoother shifting and longevity of your high-performance transmission, the answer is “TREMEC oil, of course!”

Developed in conjunction with world-class automotive and industrial lubricant producers, TREMEC HP-MTF High Performance Manual Transmission Fluid is designed to provide an ideal balance of rugged protection and responsive shifting in accordance with the OEM-level standards of TREMEC’s own engineering.

Compatible with all TREMEC manuals produced since 2008, HP-MTF is also yellow metal safe, meaning that it may provide benefits in non-TREMEC units, such as the early 3- and 4-speeds that TREMEC transmissions typically displace.

Initially developed with street performance in mind, HP-MTF fluid can support severe-duty use in vehicle competition applications.

  • HP-MTF, 1-Quart Bottle (TUSA16992HP-MTF)
  • 4-Quart Case (TUKT16993)


  • Compatible with all TREMEC aftermarket assemblies from 2008 to current, including the T-5, TKO, Magnum and Magnum XL.
  • Compatible with factory assemblies on which many aftermarket units are based, it can be used in TR-3550s, TR-3650s, TR-6060s, etc.
  • May be beneficial in several non-TREMEC assemblies, although not yet validated for use in other systems.

Features and Benefits

  • Improved load-carrying capabilities at all temperatures
  • Stable viscosity
  • Provides good shift performance in cold temperatures
  • Compatible with yellow metals and carbon-lined synchronizer materials
  • Improved dynamic seals performance and reduced leaks
  • Excellent wear protection at high temperatures

A: Some TREMEC transmissions are designed specifically to use automatic transmission fluids (ATF) for good shift quality in cold conditions, compatibility with synchronizer friction materials, and minimized parasitic drag to maximize power to the wheels.

A:  Hypoid gear oils are designed to withstand sliding actions at the meshing interface of bevel gears.  Some hypoid oils contain extreme pressure additives that are corrosive to certain non-ferrous metals that are used in transmission parts like bushings and synchronizer rings.  Also, the friction coefficient of some hypoid gear oils may be incompatible and can cause poor shifting.  Both of these conditions can result in premature or excessive wear and failure.

A: Under normal driving conditions the fluid should never require changing. For severe driving or racing, fluid changes should be made frequently, especially when operating temperatures of the transmission fluid exceed 250°F.
