Default Engine and Transmission Oil?

I need to change both...What weight oil is supposed to go in the KA24E and what kind of transmission oil should I use in the 5-speed? I'm looking for stuff that I can get at the autoparts store, not Royal Purple and stuff like that made for race cars

Also, how much oil is required for the oil change. Sorry, I don't have my FSM with me.

Ok, I had no luck finding API GL-4 fluid last night. Granted, I was at Walmart... Anyone know of any other brands besides Red Line that have specific GL-4 MT fluid?

I found a great article about GL-4 vs GL-5 with some recommendations of fluids to use. Here is the article:

I ended up buying some Pennzoil Synchromesh. It is a replacement for the GM Synchromesh, which is awesome stuff. They highly recommend it in my Acura transmission and in Tremmec's. The DSM guys love it is seems along with the 3000GT/Stealth guys

"formulated with high quality paraffinic base stocks, a fluidity modifier, multifunctional performance additives, corrosion inhibitors, a foam suppressor and a shear stable viscosity index improver additive. It provides excellent oxidation stability, low temperature performance, excellent synchronizer performance and compatibility with yellow metals, such as bronze, brass and copper components found in manual transaxles and transmissions." This description makes Synchromesh suitable for use in some transaxles or transmissions where GL-4 gear oils are specified.

Ok, I'm done talking to myself...

I would run the GM Synchromesh in a heartbeat. This stuff is supposed to be the OE replacement made by Pennzoil for GM, but like 1/2 the price. Good enough for my truck I'm sure.
