Redline or Royal Purple?

Getting my LSD installed next week. Installer says they have Royal Purple in stock which they can use, but I keep reading about Redline being a good one too.. Which should I go for?

Chime in everyone who has LSDs!

I've always been bias to redline. Honestly there is probably no difference.

Shouldn't you run it for 100 mi or something sim and then flush with fresh stuff? Royal Purple is good gear oil but redline is some of the best in the world. Almost every racer I know with built difs runs redline.

Redline is way superior to the Royal Purple junk. You can also look into Amsoil; really good stuff too. Or you can get the ultimate stuff...NEO

Royal Purple is overhyped for all the wrong reasons. Stick with Redline.

VIN Decoder <-- enter the last 7 digits of your vin and it will let you know the amount of fluids you need in your 335.
