    cant be 100% positive but 4 ltr seems too much , an average engine takes that ! your probably more near it with 2 ltr.
    I recently topped up after replacing a driveshaft and it took less than a litre to replace what i lost .

    I changed mine to try & better the V cold tight shifting & the F40 6 Speeder Crunch into 2nd.

    I used Redline MTL & it did make things better

    As for changing, It's a bit awkward, Drain plug on lower side of gearbox casing, Level plug higher up, & filler plug very awkwardly located V near & under the battery Box.

    Make sure you can remove the filler plug before you drain Ther is nothing worse than having shiny new oil to go in, The old oil sat in the drain tray & a disabled car !!!!
