    I can now report the results of my 550 mile service on the Murcielago having driven for another hundred or so miles since. I put the spec'd Agip LSA gear lube in the front and rear differential but instead I used the SA, non slip, no limited slip additive gear lube in the gear box. It does shift easier as one would expect since the synchos must slip just a little less.

    Instead of the 5W-40 Agip for engine oil I used 0W-30 Mobil 1. Here there was a big difference right off the bat (no pun intended). I had a valve noise that signified a spacer may be a little thin. Of course it is better to be a little thin than a little too thick but there was this noise and I did not like it. The tappet noise nearly disappeared. I would say the engine is near silent, mechanically.

    It was not that easy to do this first service. It was a 4/5 wrench project. It will be easier the next time. I do not recommend this service unless you have a lot of auto mechanical experience. Experience is the key word.
