    yeah i have a Y1 LSD tranny and i was wondering what is the best fluid to use with it. Some have said just regular 10w-30 motor oil others say different. Can anyone tell me for sure.

    Than start a thread and post it up, I'm sure many would have lots to ask you about thesetup, but DO NOT THREADJACK!!!


    Anyway, BOT, I used 10w30 for a long time, work just fine, I recently switched to Castrol SMX synthetic, and it was a little smoother. Haven't been able to find it here, butt he GM or Pennzoil syncromesh w/friction modifiers, is supposedly one fo the best feeling fluids around.
