    I remember a recommendation from Steve Kiddel and Dave Jarman. Will try to fing the posting. Think it was Red Line?

    Same for gearbox and diff? I thought they had different requirements, although this is only going by what I've read and no first hand experience.

    I think most confusion centers around the fact that the gearbox should use GL4 spec only, whereas the diff is ok with GL4 or 5.
    Or oil that is sometimes branded as GL4+, which is actually GL5 but with an additional additive package that makes it compatible with transmission's needing GL4 i.e it's not supposed to harm yellow metals!
