Best engine and gearbox oil for DW10BTED+RHZ

Hi Forum. Can anyone recommend the best oil to use in (1) the engine and (2) the gearbox of my van please?  She's about to receive a new engine which will be the BTED+RHZ and i want to make the right choice (up till now i've been using any brand of 10w/50).

Being a new or refurb engine I'd have the tendency to go with what's in handbook IIRC for mine (DW8B) it's a 10W 40 semi synth which I try and buy in semi bulk ie 20ltr at a time for around £30....£33 at moment and again IIRC  the the handbook will say G box will take something like a 75w90 ....1.9 or 2ltr ..... my 306 (DW8) ran very low on G box oil (whining and dry getting not to mention heat that's been generated) many years ago and I also added a Tube of Molyslip to help give it a fighting chance and a bit of time for me to source a box for it  ....... That was about 80,000mls ago and about 3 Spanish trips.............. Being graphite based Molyslip doesn't half blacken up and make it (G box Oil) look filthy

Go with recomended in hand book or what engine builder says for warranty sake...........

(There should be a handbook download here somewhere)
