I'll defiantly report back with how I like it. Just for information, Redline has 4 GL-4 fluids.

MT-LV 75W
MTL 75W80
MT-85
MT90

Dave couldn't recommend a fluid outside of manufactures recommendation but he stated the additive package is consistent throughout the GL-4 lineup. Only difference is the viscosity.

Here is a good vid discussing the new 10k mile recommendation vs the older 5k.
A bit lengthy but worth the watch, especially the cost comparison most of us don't pay much attention to.

Note that it is geared toward Toyotas

He also recommends doing the first oil change at 1k miles as does Mercedes on new vehicles.
Frankly, I do the first oil and filter at under 100 miles and have yet to have an engine burn any oil. My Ford 5.4 P/U with over 300k miles burns no measurable amount at 5k mile change intervals.
After all it is a PITA to add oil between changes.

The TC seems to like the thicker fluid when I'm in 4 wheel drive; been out west to Utah and norther Arizona a few times and the factory fill was to thin for me personally. I ran Amsoil 75w90 in my TC for 22k miles and it ran smooth as butter, however, I learned that the GL-5 gear oils eat away at the brass synchronizers in the TC so I started shopping for a GL-4 fluid and settled on Redline.

Toyota doesn't make oil. Dealer oil changes are nothing but a waste of money. Those bulk tanks are filled with the absolute cheapest bulk oil they can get. Don't waste your $ at the dealer on anything, ever.
