I mashed the gas with about 60 feet on my gears. They whine, but they are motive, so im not worried about it.

Royal Purple 75w90 is what you want, although i've heard to use conventional gear oil to start with, then change it after 1000 miles or so.

Also, I looked at a FRPP cover and decided to go with a Trick flow rear end cover/girdle... Very high quality, like everything else they make!

So you are saying that i will need to change the gear oil about 1000 miles after the install. Dont you have to have some special tool or pump thing to do that? i dont see how to get the oil in the rear-end. I dont think i would be able to just dump the oil in.
