The front diff calls for 80w90. I wouldn't run what's not recommended in there. I have conventional 80w90 in mine. The rear is where I have my 75w140. The overall viscosity seemed about the same to me when I did the change. I also recommend using silicone to seal the differentials and not gaskets. My front gasket already leaks and I tightened it all to factory spec (IIRC 27 ft lb or so). The 44a doesn't have any gaskets available. My thin head of silicone is holding up without issue.

75w140 is thicker when it is hot outside, 80w90 is thicker than 75w140 when it is cold outside. The first number is viscosity at winter 0*F and the second number is viscosity at 212*F

Out of curiosity, what's the unit for viscosity? I could look it up, but I'm already in bed, on my phone. I'm gonna be lazy here.

I'm guessing they meant Boso, an abbreviation of Bosozoku, a style of modified car in Japan. It's still incorrect, but it does, at least, bring it into cars with shiny bits.

If you mean definition..... viscosity means resistance to flow

Installed a Magnaflow high flow cat, Flowmaster Super 44 muffler, and a K&N air filter, then drove around for awhile and enjoyed the new sound.

I would find a better place to ground those fans don't you think? Like the engine block or where the battery grounds too.

Left it at a transmission shop to find out what the problem is. After I adjusted the TV cable, it shifted a lot smoother. Seems that when it's cold it doesn't want to shift into third, and will hold onto 2nd for a greater period of time and when it finally does, it revs like it's in neutral and then slots into gear smoothly. hope it's nothing too bad. I guess if I HAVE TO, I can borrow my grandmas brand new corvette.

There isn't one. Viscosity is a coefficient. Like friction and drag.

Well they are just part of the radiator not the chassis or block. I dunno, I just like to ground to something solid. Being paranoid again.

lol them bolts that they are on is groundin them to the upper rad support so would that not be a chassis ground? I also got that dang bolt out. took it to my buddies shop and he had to weld on what was left and welded a nut on it and it came right out after alittle turning back and fourth.. the treads were not screwed up and no rust so i have no idea why it broke and would not come out with vice grips.....
