ah... these are all so hard to find. I guess I'll just suck up the shipping on the castrol.

The reline mt-90 wouldn't be a good replacement? Or any redline?

Why does every store stock valvoline?

Bite the bullet and order two of everything online if you can't find it locally.


I didn't find redline at any major outlets, but I did find it at a local race shop around here. If you're against ordering it online, I'd go to the nearest speed shop and have a look - I mean its a 50/50 chance, they're either going to have royal purple or redline products or both, probably in addition to lucas.

Redline MT-90 worked fine for me. I had it in for 30,000 miles then swapped in an STI RA gearset.

I recently switched to Redline MT-90 + Redline LW Shockproof 50/50 mix (because it sounded like a good idea when I read tmarcel's post).

Works perfectly fine.

But, a couple questions, when is the cocktail supposed to kick in?

Reverse is nice and smooth, but man 5th gear is still a whiney biznitch...

My two cents, It's all I got. K one owner car, replaced syncros at 30k and 60k. at 90 I switched in Mobil 1, yea if you read the rest of this forum you will know better. Put in this concocktion<-? and honestly the crap box has never felt better. I can actually some what abuse it. At first it didn't feel the greatest but I promise you'll love it. If not the boys at rallysportdirect (look em up) pointed out some new Redline 75-90NT or some shiazz that was supposedly made for the problamatic tranny, but then again that's coming from a RL sales rep.

Hey, I've had a couple quarts of the castrol and 1 quart of the syncromesh sitting in my garage for about 2 years now. I am about to use the cocktail to change my trans fluid. I still need to order the RL but was wondering if the fluid I already have is still good? Like does it go bad or expire? haha. thanks -mike

Its just a drain plug, not like a support or anything.

It probably gets torqued to a little more than the oil drain plug.

Search the thread entirely.

Some people have opted for the heavyweight and liked it.

The Redline Power pack has a qt of 75w90 for the center diff ?

Where is this located, probably in the center, (LOL), but is it a must to be changed when you do the tranny and rear diff ?

thanks

w3rd.

rear diff has its own lubricant though, so change that as well.

Depending on year of the car, its going to either be a T70 torque bit, or half inch drive on the backside of the rear diff.

Make sure to undo the top plug first, because they can be a bitch and you don't want a drained diff that you can't fill back up. Only fill up until the bottom of the fill plug and use some anti-sieze sealant when you put the bolts back in. Clean the plugs too because they can get some nasty gunk on them.

You may need a pump or something to get the fluid in, but I just tilted the sucker and squeezed and mangled the bottle. It doesn't take the whole bottle but there's very little left when you're done.

The rear diff is the 75w90 and the front diff is apart of the cocktail. Don't overfill!!
