Here is a link to an excellent article in Issue 71 of the Turbo Diesel Register on rebuilding a G56. Go to page 106 & read the 3rd paragraph down on the right hand side of the page. They give their recommendation on what type of fluid to use in a G56 & the reasons for useing it. http://www.turbodieselregister.com/magazines/Issue_071.phtml

I personally use AMSOIL - Synthetic Manual Synchromesh Transmission Fluid (MTF)

I also installed a set of FAST COOLER KIT - (5-SPEED AND 6-SPEED)-Dodge Cummins Diesel Truck Accessories – Geno’s Garage

You will also need the adapter plates. If you decide to get the Fast Coolers the install goes a lot easier if you cut out some gaskets using the adapter plates as a template than trying to use the sealant they give you.

I second this :agree2::agree2:
just as 1slo said blended Specifically for the G-56 Making it the BEST IMO
And he only wants a bar of gold per quart :doh:
It'll be a drop in the hat compared to what it will cost to rebuild a g-56

Its very high quality if you ever see one built you will understand why they cost so much its a very time consuming process (thats why its so high). Mike is very a very good engineer, designer, and fabricator. under the high torque the g56 faces the case tends to flex thats what the torq shield is there to prevent. Mike can build to your needs. Its good to hear about the Gorrilla juice you wont be sorry :party018:

I'm sure sled pulling is very hard on the case its all luck of the draw brother might get away with it ... then again you might now there really is no hard set number that you will break at

I can promise you its no $6 lube from walmart if you ever handle it you would know better than that. I have dealt with this company quite a bit nothing they sell is junk. Just so we are clear I do not work for Lazarsmith I am one of their customers

Maybe we could get a vendor on board and do a group buy of some sorts. They already give a bulk discount, maybe we could do better?
