You should have asked Dean what he uses in his,Im sure he will say Mercrusier. This is my second boat with big power and the only thing that has been in them is Red Line,No problems as of yet, outside of a couple of top caps. By the way, as of now, I havent been able to save enough for B-maxs,I presently have Imcos but it works!!
Hope you the best in what-ever you use they are all good, just some better than others!! ( Like Females)

AMSOIL Series 2000 Racing Gear Oil 75-90. It si 100% Synthetic and each time I change it, there is no silver color whatsoever! I HIGHLY reccommend it. You can become a dealer for like $20 per year and save some big money. Good luck.

Default Gear lube

AMSOIL GL-4 is great and so are the 75-90 weights. All the AMSOIL gear lubes seem to be perfect for outdrives.

I personally use GL-4. Change @ 50 hrs.

Default OIL

DOES ANY BODY USE TORCO IN THEIR DRIVE? LOOKS LIKE MOST ARE USING THE AMSOIL.
