DiaQueen discontinued - now what?

EPA has closed the door on DiaQueen. What’s the back up plan for fluids? Possible we can still get DiaQueen elsewhere? What was the magic ingredient our EVO’s lives so much?

Unless something changed again recently that ban has come and gone so you should be fine. See here: https://www.evolutionm.net/forums/ev...continued.html

Redline is better anyways. MT90 shifts better in both the 8/9 5speed and the X. And the redline gl5 gear oil has higher EP additive content.

The fluid in question is for the transfer case and rear diff

I don't think anyone assumed T-case over Diaqueen in general (other than you?). They make trans fluid too, which was more common for people wanting due to 6speed longevity.
