    Default Fluids, ewww....

    Replacing my fluids and can't seem to find the manual for the car, any recommendations for Transmission (Cat 6-speed) oil, Diff oil, and Brake Fluid?

    Thanks

    Diff fluid, standard 90W EP is fine, even for the Quaife. If ZF ask them.

    Brake fluid, Motul 600 or the cheap DOT Stuff, they all work fine. Do not use the special silicone stuff as it is a pain.

    Transmission, for the 6 speed I don't know but for the SPC Close ratio I use Redline lightweight shockproof per the builders recommendation.

    SAE 75W90, API GL-4 (do NOT use GL-5!)
    EP90
    DOT 4 (do NOT use DOT 5!)

    I used Redline MT-90 in my 5-speed (their MTL is SAE 75W80, and MT-90 is SAE 75W90). Can't recall what I last used in either diff or brake/clutch lines.

    Thanks. You think gearbox oil is the same for the 6-Speed?

    Do you need to replace the oil? It lasts a LONG time.
