Recommended Engine and Gearbox oil for low km EL XR6 5spd?

Hey guys

My EL XR6 is going in for a service on Friday (@63,000kms - to keep log books) and I was just interested to see what oils people recommend for a car like mine?

I was looking at either Mobil 1 SuperSyn 5W-50 or Shell Helix Ultra 5W-50 for the engine, and I found some Pennzoil synthetic manual g/box/LSD oil, which was 80W-140.

What do you guys think?

Put auto oil in the Gearbox, gives you a smoother change.... or Tranzmax Z Castrol oil, is also good
