I did mine at 120 inch pounds, Dont just torque to that value, do a half torque, then go to full torque. after all bolts are at half.

I'll definitely do them in a step pattern. Probably will go 144 in lbs. That'* only 2 lbs. over spec.

I can't believe how much fluid I got out! Drained for 16 hours and got out about 8 quarts.

I did both the van and car, The van took a good 6 quarts, the car took 7 or more quarts, but I pulled the shift modulator on the car and rebuilt that. The van has a small leak now, so when the weathers good I'll be going over that again.
