Can anyone remember the thread on the better oil to put in the T5. What was the brand of oil, was Redline, how much was it and also how litres do I need??

No worries TP ,
ATF (dextron 3) and a tube of nulon additive did the trick for me.....

Havent had the chance to try Xtra Light gear oil yet....

Mines only done 44000km's so I am still not sure whether to go the Dex III, or the Castrol stuff.

I don't mind paying a little bit extra for a longer lasting box, also what type of price are you looking at for this stuff, and how much, 1,9ltrs comes to mind but I am not sure.

About two litres, about $11-$15 a litre. (shop around).

I have tried both the normal dextron/Nulon G70 combo and have very recently changed to the Castrol Transmax Z. So far i'm happy with the TransMax Z for my T5.

I paid $64 for 4 litres of Transmax Z from Super Cheap - was the best price I could find. Haven't even gotten around to putting it in yet. :err:
