Does anyone have a "How-to" on changing the transmission fluid? I wanted to change the fluid to Redline MT-90. Is that the best option?

MT-90 made a huge difference in cold shift quality and eliminated my 2nd gear protest.

Amsoil is a smidge better than Redline's stuff, and you can get a pump that fits onto their bottles to make the fluid change process even easier.

here's a great one. tranny takes about 30 minutes including time to allow the old fluid to drain out.

I'm sure there is an Amsoil dealer near you. They are over the place. Lok in the phone book under oil or something like that. You can go to the Amsoil website or check a local store.

OK,
Very enlightening..
I was also hoping to hear if the Amsoil has helped with the shifting as much as the redline has been said to.
I have a problem into second, especially when cold.
I installed the CPE dogbone, but it didn't help much...
