Redline Power Packages

What do you guys think of this package. Is it a worthwhile buy?

Since I drive a WRX and am hopefully going to be in the 300whp club after my turbo install, I wanted to at least have some better oils in my car, particularly in the transmission. Right now I just use Valvoline 80w-90 in my tranny.

I got it. It's a great deal. I'd ask them if you can replace one of the cans of 75-90ns with a qt of shockproof lightweight. Then you can get into 1st gear on a roll. BTW Nice hat too.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.

Do I really need the rear diff oil? Ive never heard of anyone changing rear diff fluid. I actually
cant even think of where to put more oil in. Then again, I never looked. I definitely want to get the shock proof stuff. What exactly is it? Do I just mix it in with the other 4 qts of gear oil?
And their regular 5W-30 oil is synthetic, right?


Edit: Also, exactly which type of shockproof do I need? Heavy? Light? Superlight? V-Twin?

I decided to go with just Royal Purple alone for my tranny. I ordered 4 qts of it for $49 shipped on eBay. Ive read a lot about Uncle Scottys Cocktail and everything, but, after talking to a lot of people that know transmissions, they recommened Royal Purple.

Mixing Redline won't hurt a thing. If you must go with Royal purple, go for 3qt RP and 1qt Redline lightweight shockproof. I'm tellin'ya' just 1 qt of that stuff will change your life.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.
