How much did you pay for the fluids? I want to change mine when it gets warmer but I don't know how much to expect to pay. I was thinking of Mobil 1 for the diff, but I keep hearing about Redline and Amsoil. Also, why didn't you just use the same fluid all around since they are the same weight? Thanks.
Well, I didn't pay anything for the fluids, so I can't tell you exact. Friend of mine bought a couple cases through a group buy in the Supra club he belongs to. He said it averaged about $4/quart, and I got it free (he owed me a favor anyways).
He only had 2 quarts of the Redline fluid left, and almost a whole case of Amsoil, so that's why I used 2 different kinds. I had also been reading around where some poeple didn't like the 'normal' Redline fluid in the tranny - the shockproof stuff gets great reviews, but not the regular 75w-90. I was going to wait and order a bunch of the shockproof specifically for the tranny, but I figured if the Supra guys are running the Amsoil stuff, it's gotta be decent enough... their tranny's alone are about half of what I paid for my car
So, since I've had a morning's commute under my belt, I still think the car is doing better. I have a little trouble when cold getting the car from 2nd to 1st, but no grinding, just patience works fine.
Hope this helps, any other questions, just lemme know.
