Gearbox oil - with LSD 6 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 18
My rev4 n/a is getting its first trackday next week and I thought I better change the gearbox oil in advance, it's probably never been done and she can be a little hard to shift into 2nd when cold.

I've done lots of reading and Redline MT90 seems to be the common choice, although it is pricey. Couture Auto or Opie Oils seem to be the only suppliers I've heard of.

Is there a particular grade I need to choose for the LSD? I've seen some discussions about it but none that specifically say what oil for the Torsen LSD's.

Can anyone advise?


Now, silly question time - I presume there is no seperate filler for the LSD, it just all fills into the gearbox from the side filler hole?

Not 100% sure the one if you turn one wheel by hand the 2nd wheel turns the same way

Cheers lads, I went with Redline 75w90 which is suitable for LSD's. The lsd feeds from the gearbox.
