Hi Roland,

I'm assuming your P5 has a 4speed/overdrive too?  I looked up BG Synchro 
Shift and it looks similar to Redline MTL.  I'm going to try the MTL -- 
I heard back from Red Line and they saw no issue with using it in an 
overdrive.   I've also read that a lot of people are using MTL in Volvo 
manual gearboxes with Laycock overdrives with good results.  Apparently 
Volvo has recommended gear oil, engine oil and ATF at various times for 
their manual/OD gearboxes, even though the overdrives have not changed 
much over the years. 

We'll see how it goes...
