First Service

I'm going in to have the first service done on my GT, and was surprized to hear that they will replace the final drive fluid with Dino, not synthetic. I understand the idea behind keeping the engine Dino, but the FD?

Interesting. I had my 600 mile service done in Orlando and they put Amsoil in the FD.

Never, no way, NOT Approved... Not enough shear strength. Are you sure?
