If you are going to Redline, use the MTL or MT90 in your trans. MTL is
70w80 and the Mt 90 is 90W. Some use a combination of both.
Do not put the Redline 75W90 in your trans. It is GL5 gear oil and is not
good for the brass syncros in the transmission. Audi only recommends GL4 for
the transmission. Use the 75W90 in the rear diff.
The MTL and MT90 are both GL4.

It's me again, with another lubricant question.
I'm about to put an S4tt 6-speed into the S6 and wondered if there was a
transmission fluid of choice for the 01E. I'm leaning toward Redline because
of their reputation, but really don't know what weight to use, nor do I know
if I should use the friction modifier free type or not (75W90NS). Anyone
have an oil they have changed (I know these are supposed to be sealed for
life gboxes) and really like? Thanks in advance. I'll let everyone know how
it goes once it's in.
