I just got my new LSD put on, and plan to swap the fluid. What fluid do I need to buy for this?

At the same time, I plan to change to the oil and trani fluid. The stckers have been removed from my car, so what oil do I need, and what transmission fluid do I need?

Thanks in advance.

2 1qt/1lt bottles each. You will have a little left over.

And as the last poster mentioned, use synthetic ATF for the tranny.

Transmission will eat about 1L of ATF synthetic if i remember correctly, so buy 2 1L since the way it is filled, Under the car, to the passenger side, sometimes some comes out and you have to top up etc. Since no one mentioned it, you will need to get a fluid transfer pump to fill the transmission back up. About $5 from walmart

I have not done the diff.
