I've been using Motul Gear 300 75w90. There was some "chunky notchiness" with the OEM fluid because of the Perrin short shifter adapter and bushing. Changed to the Motul, there's still some notchiness but it's smoothed out noticeably.
The brand that I've seen people have a lot of luck with is AMS-Oil. Full disclosure, haven't heard this from many Subaru owners (mainly because there aren't any that I talk to on a regular basis), but I know several people who run their synchromesh fluid in Corvettes and such and have heard nothing but good things about it. Could be worth a shot.
Keep us posted, this wouldn't be the first time I heard a transmission being a bit picky about oil brand. I've been using Redline in my 6 and have noticed some notchiness lately. Wasn't sure if it's just age/mileage, or the fluid, but I'm planning a switch to Motorcraft stuff soon, it's supposed to like it better.
I had a similar issue on my truck last year. If you used regular manual transmission heavy gear oil it would ruin the transmission. It's amazing how picky some transmissions can be on what gear oil you use. Hopefully you swapped out fluids before any damage was done.

#travellesson So I took my first long trip since having my car tuned, where my wife and I drove to
So, I've had the car for a littler over four months now and I had already done all my research for
So, Tuning Day has come and gone. Unfortunately the dyno was down so instead of getting numbers and a dyno tune, all I was able to get was a road tune. The good part though, is that all my parts were properly installed (by me), which I was concerned about, and the car is running perfectly. The roundabout guesstimate from the shop is 330WHP on pump gas, but I as not convinced that I will see those numbers on the dyno next week.
Let's see those numbers!
So the car made 305 whp and 345 wtq on a Dynocom FX5000-AWD dynamometer. Overall satisfied with the numbers.
Very respectable, especially the tq number! I'll bet it pulls nicely off the line. Shoot, that's around 400tq at the motor 👍🏼
