Sounds good Bob. I'm running straight Redline D4-ATF right now and noticed a nice improvement from the factory fill. I'm thinking maybe the PO was a little hard on the 2nd-to-third synchro. I just shift normally for a few miles on really cold days and then everything seems to "mesh" correctly. It only happens on cold mornings.
