Re: what gear oil other then mt90 do you 3.94 vr's use (HiTdAtSiT)

word on the street is that mt-90 will eat the brass in transmissions. in an O2O at least, don't see why it would be any different in an O2A...
worst case scenario, a completely un-warranted purchase of the wrong transmission fluid, resulting in putting new, correct tranny-fluid, and vice-versa

yeh i just read a post on the heavyweight shockproof which im looking into...but does anybody know if this is gl4 rated for our trannys?

i recall reading that 020 requires gl4, while 02A can use gl5.
dont hold me to it though. lol
yet it was recommended to me by a well trusted friend who has built sc vr's, turbo vr's, turbo miatas, tuned and worked on 400+ hp srt4's, s/c g35 coupe, etc.
his resume is good enough for me.
