On the recommendation of the tech who rebuilt my trans, I am now using Amsoil. I had been using Royal Purple.

Does the Sport 5sd need the large torx bit for the drain plug?
Thanks for the data point - of course, I suspect the NA motor is a heck of a lot easier on the gearcase and diff

Dunno on the torx bit haven't crawled under to check yet, you know what size, I've got some pretty big Torx head monster bits in my kit?

That's 2 votes to leave the trans alone - 1 vote to change trans?

2 votes to change diff - 1 vote to leave diff alone?

Damn, I don't even NEED a lift to change the diff, I'd feel stupid pulling it in JUST for that.

Thanks for the thoughts guys, leaving soon.
