Okay, so if 75w90 is proper for the 200q20v's 016 tranny(Bentley, p
34-10-2, says it is: "GL4 SAE 80 or G50 SAE 75W-90 (Synthetic)", I
interpret that to be Amsoil's AGR Synthetic Gear lube, 75W-90,
GL2-GL5, MT-1.

What about the rear diff?  Same?  Also, I couldn't find capacities
for the rear diff, only the main tranny(3.2L/3.4 quarts.)
