What gear oil to use in VLSD from Turbo Legacy

I'm pretty sure the VLSD unit is sealed, so regular gear oil should be fine.
I second that.

I would suggest using an API-GL5, 75W-85 oil the manual gearbox. Or a straight 80W. 90W gives slower shifts.

If we are talking about the older LSD's (non-viscous, not VLSD) like the ones in the older RX's, they take special LSD fluid.

Setright, they are meaning the rear LSD, which has the same principle. Any LSD Subaru has ever produced, which is the rear LSD's in cars like the 91 turbo Legacy, the newer Legacy GT's and such, and also ALL AWD center diffs, are all VLSD's and the LSD part is a sealed unit apart from the regular oil.
Not true, the pre 1990 LSD's were clutch type.
