Hi

You need a 75w-90 for the gearbox.

75w-90 Gear Oils for your Car from Opie Oils

If you want to go for the best, the Millers CRX 75w-90 NT, Gulf Competition, Motul Gear 300, Red Line 75w-90NS and Millers TRX are ideal for the gearbox. The Castrol Universal/Universal Plus, Motul Motylgear and Fuchs Gear Syn are all decent alternatives.

Cheers

Tim

Hi

Factory LSDs or aftermarket ones? The oils I mentioned are fine with the factory diffs, but some aftermarket ones are a bit fussier.

Cheers
