Right.... But my point is a lot of other transmissions have this as well and do fine with various products.
You yourself said some synchromesh fluids are fine in our transmissions.

Proper operation in say a Chevy manual trans that requires GM Synchromesh fluid means absolutely noting in regards to a Saturn transmission.

Let me be clear. Most modern transmissions use fiber/ composite materials on the synchros they very often times use a synchromesh or a gl4 rated lube.
ATF was a cheap solution that was adequate at best from day one.
ATF doesn't have the awp of a dedicated manual transmission fluid. .the only concern should be viscosity, which a premium synchromesh that is synthetic should negate the potential concerns in regards to viscosity..... obviously you shouldn't go crazy thick! Also the other and biggest concern is that you don't want the fluid to harm the fiber synchros/ harm the glue.....it's been proven that synchromesh doesn't harm the fiber synchronizers.
If I'm wrong then fine but I'd like evidence I'm wrong not just an opinion. What inside of synchromesh will harm our transmission?
Why and how is atf superior?
Btw I installed the fluid today and it is the smoothest it's ever been. Diff pin also looked flawless!

Perhaps reviewing a Saturn training video can help; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBue8XTbcog. A Saturn parts and service manual for your xmission would be invaluable.

What do you think that proves?
My dart for example calls for 0w20 do you think if I run 5w30 it'll blow up? Or get harmed?

Certainly and after the presidential debate I intend on watching the video in its entirety. I just happen to believe that synchromesh atleast amsoil and Valvoline is ok in our transmissions. I would say that Pennzoil is probably to thick in the cold because it is a dino based product. But I don't think these products mentioned will harm our transmissions. There are people way smarter than me that echo this same opinion.
