So I am looking for a GL-4 gear oil for my 240 and from what I have heard these are the top brands. I almost bought the royal purple gear oil but I have heard bad things about it in our S13's. So whats is everyones opinion AMSoil or Redline... Right now im leaning towards AMSoil.

I've always had success with Redline MT90 GL4, and I can get it somewhat locally which helps.

I have no first hand experience with either, buthave heard good things about AMSoils. Also I have heard VERY BAD things about Royal Purple in any cars (metal shavings after <100 miles) and if you read the gear oil bottle i think it says for auto trans. so yeah, i would stay far away from that.

I like the engine oil. I have it in my frontier and i got way getter mileage and cooler temps that with dino oil, but i haven't tried any other synthetics to compare. I am thinking about trying ams though.

i always heard great things about ams oil. Hell I heard from one guy at a shop that he had a prelude come in saying he had a leak. That guy would only use ams oil, so lucky enough that the shope sold it there. they ended up adding 4qts, to get it to the full mark. now I don't know about you all, but I have never heard of a car run even a mile with only half a quart of oil in it.

My trans was great until I put RP in it, now its permanently fucked. As far as Redline or AMSoil, either are great. I'm going to start running AMSoil myself after I get a different/rebuilt trans.
