G50 g'box Oil - Best type and Weight ?

My owner's manual says to use 90W in the G50 g'box (not LSD).  Time has marched on, and now we have greatly improved lubricants from which to choose.  I would like to use a full synthetic, and am also interested in using a multi-grade oil such as an 85W-140. 90W-140, etc. for better protection in the summer heat.  I will greatly appreciate your input.

-  Subsequent to my initial post (paragraph above), I've found many with professional Porsche experience are saying that Mobil 1 Synthetic Delvac 75W-90 is the way to go.  Any issues with that lubricant ?

Thanks,

Bill
