.......a good opportunity to do the internal cooler by-pass also :wink:

Thanks axelsup. I did a do a drain/fill of just the tranny, but that was only @ 4 quarts. Let us know how yours went, sounds like a sound plan. I'll probably do the cooler bypass then too (as eieio stated).

I keep seeing Chocmo, that good huh? Thanks for the welcome too!
