I have an ELXR6.

What oil do I need to use when I change the oil in the LSD?
Never done it before.

The best Oil for the diff 'I' believe is Castrol SAF-XA Fully synthetic and does cost a bit (30bux per 1ltr)

I personally think Penrite Limslip 80-140 is too thick (but a lot of people use it)

Best all-rounder is Castrol LSX90. Its mineral and works well, its proven itself for the past 15 years.

either way they all smell like s**t when its used!

I used the penrite stuff recomended by their website, undo the bottom bolt its the drain plug, oil comes out (mine smelt really burnt) fill it up until it comes out the filler plug, just like the manual tranny really

Castrol SAF-XA with the lubrizol additive built in. Expensive but worth every penny.
