Dave McLain has mentioned on this forum that the tranny builder for the blown-alky monstertruck whom he builds engines for (Big Dawg) uses/recommends synth engine oil in his bullet-proof C6's.

If the builder of the trans recommends a certain oil, I would follow their recommendations without question. Would I swap to synth engine oil in my stock Explorer's transmission?.... No.
