    I was talking to a buddy a while back, he was big into Drag Racing for a while. He had serious bucks and a few cars that ran in the 6's!
    He said that the automatic transmission is the most overworked, under-appreciated part of any car. That said, has anybody done a tranny fluid change on the 8 speed auto?

    I did a drain & refill at 700 miles, not totally necessary I suppose but hey, its only money!

    I have a fluid pump.

    Drain at the drain plug in the pan, fill a the allen screw in the RR of the tranny housing.

    Carefull.....the exhaust can get mighty hot!

    My Bravado's & MT's are on order, I have not checked the order. I'm guessing they will show up in about 2 weeks as well.
