Help JTS 2.0 Gearbox oil

I was wondering if 75W-90 synthetic (Castrol Syntrax) gearbox oil can be used in a JTS 2.0 gearbox in my 916 spider.

The owners manual recommends 75W-85 oil. Any JTS drivers have any issues with 75W-90?
I've been asking this question in some threads but couldn't get a definite answer. Many twinspark 2.0 owners seem to be using 75W-90 without any problems but I couldn't find any reviews from JTS 2.0 owners.

While I'm on this topic, I'm also having a hard time finding a 12mm allen key. Where could you purchase it from?? Most automotive/tool stores carry allen keys up to 10mm...

thanks guys!

Alfa Romeo is a kind of disease... It's hard to define. It is one of those irrational human traits that defy logical definition.

It is the same gearbox, so it will be fine to use a 75W90 as long as it is GL5 spec.
