2005 CTS-V, Light Platinum/Gray Leather, Corsa exhaust system, tinted windows, GMPD plate behind shifter, Rejex on wheels, Redline 75w90 gear oil in rear differential (no need for limited slip additive) with this Redline product, Redline D4 ATF in transmission. Vehicle now has 2000 miles.

Factory gear oil and transmission oil came out very clean.

No need for a suction gun to add the lube in the rear diff or transmission. Just use a 5 foot piece of 3/8in clear tubing with a funnel. Route the tubing up under the hood or up the rear tire opening and poor in the lube.

I noticed a noise at 42 MPH in third and fourth gear, thought it was the rear end. Turns out it is the exhaust system. If I allow the vehicle to warm up before I drive it, no noise!

I have no need for a radio/CD player with the Corsa exhaust system, HP sounds great!
