    I'm also going to be doing this in the next couple days and was a little confused by the difference between the lightweight and heavy shockproof/if it would be appropriate for my 5MT. I live in PA it can get pretty cold and pretty hot...

    Thanks for the help Jeremy.

    No subie should ever run heavyweight shockproof...always lightweight. Heavyweight is like the consistency of cold margarine...

    I live in PA and I used lightweight shockproof and it made a big difference.... I would go with Extra S if I had people to split it with or maybe just use it myself...

    ^^^ Exactly. LW shockproof only.

    I still am really happy with the Amsoil SVG and Shockproof mix. Very nice smooth shifting, nice and quiet. Better IMO then Uncle Scottys mix, but I blame that on the "Syncromesh" fluid. Its not compatible with the other two and doesn't belong.

    no "mix" needs be done in the rear diff, but the R180 requires a special "dealer sold" Subaru diff fluid in a tin 1L can. The r160 you can use pretty much anything in. I have LW Shockproof in my rear diff right now, which seems to be working fine. That little R160 gets such a workout and holds soo little fluid I'd throw synthetic in it though. It only holds ~.8L and at 15k miles my fluid was black, burnt and stinky both times. I can't imagine what its like in cars that are over 60k miles with no rear fluid change.

    Would you recommend an aftermarket rear diff cover then to increase capacity?

    More fluid is a good idea, however the cost of the diff cover can often be the same price as a replacement rear end. The Perrin Piece is $250. If you install you are out the price of fluid and maybe a gasket, but if someone else installs you'll be out around another $150 for labor plus fluid and parts.

    Something to think about.

    do the aftermarket ones increase capacity or are the just designed w/ fins and the like to aid in cooling?
