I know it is not right, my rep thinks it isnt right, and the tranny guy thinks it is fine because of the gears, but i have 20k on factory warranty left, and its now documented i was there. if it grenades, it grenades, i know it wasnt my fault... will let you know how it sounds in a few hrs
Redline Shock-Proof heavy? That is good stuff. I use it in my 92' Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4. It's not really to quiet it down, but it does have good characteristics

Red Line Synthetic Oil - ShockProof® Gear Oils - Heavy ShockProof®

  • Film thickness greater than an SAE 75W250, yet low fluid friction like 75W90
  • For heavily-loaded racing differentials and transmissions, problem gearboxes
  • Many performance racing applications like Sprint/Midget/Dirt Late Model Differentials, Detroit Lockers and spools, NHRA Top Fuel and Funny Car rear ends
  • Not recommended for most synchro applications due to the product's extreme slipperiness

  • Unique lubricant with solid microscopic particles offers low drag/high protection
  • Relatively low viscosity, yet cushions gear teeth under extreme pressure
  • Helps to prevent tooth breakage, resists throw-off
  • Avoid use with pumps, coolers, and filters as unique medium and affinity for metal can cause clogging
  • Designed for wet sump transmissions and differentials with splash lubrication
