Default Mobil 1 Dexron-VI or Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF

I"m looking to do a pan drop on my MC, but i'm not sure whether to go with the Mobil 1 Dexron-V1 (Synthetic Blend) or the Mobil1 Synthetic ATF (Full Synthetic).

Advice?

I put Castrol full synthetic in for the first time at my last oil change. I noticed immediately that the engine ran smoother. I've never tried synthetic blend, but I'm using the full synthetic from now on.

I think he is referring to transmission fluid using the verbage "pan drop" but I could be mistaken.

When I do my transmission fluid change I am going to use full synthetic.

Been there before.

If it makes you feel better I like fully synthetic motor oil too.

LOL Ok, just to clear everything up here. Yes I'm referring to the transmission.I"m just wondering if using Full Synthetic versus Synthetic Blend is going to make a difference, or damage anything. Any ideas?
