I use one of these

:Texaco /Shell 1874 MTX
: Mopar 4761526
: Dodge Spec. MS-9224
: Carquest 80/90 gear lube

I have even heard of people using Amsoil Series 3000 5w-30 oil. But Herb could tell you more about Amsoil than I. [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

I'm using Amsoil MTF and very happy with it. Shifts much easier than with the Pennzoil Synchromesh Fluid .

Ran the Amsoil Series 3000 5w-30 for over a year(about 25-30k) with no problems. When drained it came out as clear as it went in. Could have literally been bottled and re-sold.

Went back in with the Amsoil 5w-30 MTF, added a set of fast coolers at that time as well, running about 6 quarts in there now. The fluid change + mod have made about a 25-40 degree difference under the same conditions.

Max, you mentioned running Carquest 80/90. Doesn't the NV5600 require a 5W-30?
