For the transmission you can use either MT-90 or MTL.  MT90 is a little
heavier and potentially provides a little better lubrication.  MTL is
suitable for colder climates or if you want to lighten the shift feel.

The rear diff is specified to use GL5 gear oil.  I am not sure if MT90
is the correct fill.
