What he said. The OE fluid is excellent. When you pour a few ounces of Redline or RP in a cup and compare it to the OE spec that should be all the convincing you need.

A long 16mm (may be 15mm, I forget) box-end wrench will be your friend. The SMG has hydraulic lines that can make it tricky to get a ratchet on the first time you change the fluid.

Remove the fill plug first and you'll be set.

So is it in the same place as any other tranny?? That's the thing idk where anything is on smg, Idk where the fill or drain plugs are and is there anything different I have to do to it? Is it just drain tranny put plug back in and fill?? Or is there different things I have to do? Cuz ik smg is a regular 6speed but with an smg gearbox and idk if that makes it any different

Drain and fill plugs are identical. Only difference with the SMG variant is the hydraulic lines make the fill-plug hole access interesting. Last time I did it - it was just under 3 L on the drain and fill.

Good Luck.
