I have a 03 350 base with the nismo Lsd. It is time to change my diff and tranny fluids What weight fluid is best for these applications. I would like to use redline fluids.

Easy one. Royal Purple Max-Gear. It is safe for both the tranny and the Nismo Rear end. :cheers:

It's about $8 bucks a quart. Not sure what the exact viscosity is. The Max-Gear is just one weight.

Royal purple 75w-90... i've talked to a few other owners and this is what they are using in both rear end and transmission. the only person who i can find 80w-90 is amsoil for the rear end... I don't like the idea of having to do the 50/50 MTL/MT90 for the redline fluid. I've used royal purple in the past in 4wd trucks and stuff and it has worked great and improved shifting.
