Hi Tom,

Which Redline Synthetic would you recommend for the Daytona gearbox - MT 90 or MTL 75/90?

Thanks,

Gianni

I would go with the MTL 75/90 since your car has a limited slip.

Thanks Tom.

Would I still have to add a limited-slip additive, or does the MTL 75/90 already have some in it?

Best,

Gianni

Whenever we do a COMPLETE oil change on a car that uses a clutch type limited-slip, we always add a tube of limited-slip additive. The GL-5 oils that can be used in limited-slip axles are OK for "top up" but generally do not have adequate additives for a complete change.
