I don't know if you can use ramps with the front overhang of the b'ville, but by having the front end of the car up at an angle, you should get a bit more fluid out of the torque converter. Getting every little bit of fluid that you can swapped is a good thing.

does that 14lbs of torque apply for a 03 bonnie as well?

YES! It should apply to ALL of our transmissions(give or take a pound)

In this link you'll see my pan and the nottom of the trans with the filter still in place... I think the 60-E and 65-E actually use the same filter...

If you have the original pan gasket be sure to keep it as it will not leak... The one in the filter kit will leak sooner or later...

is that flange seal important to change? or can i leave the old one in there when i change the filter and fluid

put a board 1" or thicker infront of the ramp before you drive onto it and that'll make your car 1" or higher off the ground that it was before to help it clear the ramp.

Yes... You could leave it and reuse the old one, but I do not reccomend it... The 65-E and 60-E filters are supported only by the rubber/metal flange seal, and I think once you get the pan back on, the filter almost sits directly on the pan.. Its actually pretty easy to replace.. Just have to be careful not to marr the alluminum case.. Usually takes me a couple of minutes to get the flange seal out... Good Luck..

Next time I do a change I'll get better pics..
