97 impreza outback sport.
With auto trans.
Would I put the fluid in the atf hole or the 90W hole for this?

what are you trying to do?
add fluid to your transmission that has issues?
add fluid to your limited slip rear differential?
change your fluid?
do you have an LSD rear or front (highly unlikely)?
transmission fluid goes in the ATF dipstick hole on the drivers side. rear diff fluid goes in the rear differential holes - there are two, remove the higher one to fill, the lower to drain. the front diff has a separate dipstick which you add oil through as well on the passengers side.

yeah, your vehicle didn't come from the factory with any LSD. just use 80/90 weight gear lube like gary ^ said.

Are you having Torque bind issues? if you are change the tranny fluid first before doing this. The friction modifier is a last ditch effort to save a major repair, not the first line of defense.

Am going to change both the atf and the 90w fluids and want to make sure that the friction modification fluid mentioned in several threads go in the right place in the trans.

Change fluids first. If you have no TB then dont use it. You dont have posi type diifs, which is what the fluid is for. Even if you had a LSD in the rear, its a sealed unit with its own fluid (the LSD part), and the rest of the dif takes regular oil. It has no benefit to you.
