Default Ford transmission fluid in Canada

After reading all the great reviews on the Ford Synthetic Motorcraft Manual Transmission fluid out there I was determined to get some. I feared the high price we Canadians typical get hit. Amazon Canada had it listed at $39.90 for a qt, but with free shipping lol.
I did some running around and picked up some at Dixie Ford near Toronto for only $21.00 per qt. I checked the invoice and list price was $34.95 but it was discounted down to $21.00.
With current exchange rate that's about $16.00 USD.
I'll be putting it in soon and posting my impressions.

I ran it on a recommendation here. Magic in a bottle for my syncros. No complaints.

Spent a couple hours under my car pumping fluid into the tranny one squirt at a time. Did my engine oil and read diff with red line.
Initial reaction was that car felt pretty much the same , maybe a little smoother but it wasn't horrible to start. Just had some notch going 1st to 2nd and the odd notch going into 3rd.

I haven't done my turret yet , I'm hoping to find dead mouse or chunks of rubber in their so I can have that , ahha that's the issue , moment.

The boots are likely torn and the turret empty. Filling it makes life better. I, along with others, have noticed that the shifting improves with more miles after switching to the unicorn juice.

In my case, it made a decently-shifting transmission a little bit better. That's not bad, in my book, for a routine-maintenance-fluid-change.
