You need V160 oil from the Toyota dealer for the 6 speed tranny. Don't use anything else.

I use a Redline SAE90 gear oil in the differential. Takes 1.43 quarts. Don't get anything with an LSD additive. In answer to your original question, no you don't need to change both at the same time.

Sure, you fill it to the brim, but just make sure you have at least 1.43 quarts (i.e. 2 quarts on hand).

The stock gap is 0.043 in

Yes, it's right out of the service manual.

thanks again buster- i am having the plugs and a bunch of other shit done as we speak - i read somewhere on the forum to not gap the stock plugs-as bending them at an angle can decrease the spark or something like that- if the car still doesn't feel good i guess it is time to replace the coilpacks- which i'll probably have done next week-i'll keep you posted -thanks agin for all your help
