SADEV gear oil recommendation

Just sent my Sadev sequential box out for a refresh since the box was out, while getting a clutch replaced.   Good news in the box was in really good shape with a few dogs being replaced but overall the tech said to use the same oil that was in it.  Unfortunately, I bought this car 5 years ago and have no idea what was in it.  They said Motul 75 /140 is recommended but also said there was a very good Redline product that was blue, couldn't remember what.  

I've been using  Redline MTL in my Caterham 6 speed in my other car, since I assembled it 20 years ago and that works great.  

But I'd like to see what the consensus  is from the great and all powerful Blatchat wizards.

Thanks.   Tom

Thanks Mark.  I just heard from the prior owner and he said he used. Redline Lightweight Shockproof Gear Oil.  

So I just have to flip a coin now.  Both are recommended.  

Blatchat never fails.  Driving
