I would not reccomend this.  I am not a chemist, but I do understand
that shear strength is important in a gearbox and that Mobil 1 engine
oil cannot hold up to those rigors very well.  If you want to put
quality synthetic in your gearbox, try Redline MTL.  It's designed for
manual transmissions and receives nothing but good reviews.  I'm sure
someone can reccomend a supplier for you.
