Friction modifiers are generally used for lockers/ limited slip diffs. If you're running an open carrier, you should not need it. Check the FSM to see if it calls for it. Also, if you use Royal purple diff fluid, it already has it.

I think that you should put it in seeing as the G80 is a limited slip locker.
