I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
You can run pretty much any ATF.

My credo
If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
I've been told to avoid putting synthetic fluid in T5's because it affects the blocker rings ability to do their job and to stick with mercon/dexron III.

My credo
If you can’t fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem
The fluid I’ve had the best luck with and have all my customers run in my builds hands down has been D4 ATF made by Red Line.
