Default TRANS FLUSH AND B&M TRICKSHIFT

today i did a complete trans flush to my car. it removes between 99-100% of the fluid in the trans, including the converter. i used B&M trickshift fluid. its blue in color and claims to raise the stall speed a little and defintly firm up the shifts. it took 19 qts of fluid to get it running clear blue out of the waist oil line to our machine. i cant wait to see how it affects my launches
for anyone with any miles at all on their car, i recommend having the trans flushed, not just a filter change. our filter it just a nylon screen. this machine back flushes it and gets all the crap out of your trans. and it flushes everything, coolers, converter, valvebody,filter,lines, EVERYTHING

I thought somebody on this forum said that synthetic fluid for our transmissions was bad. Because that is the stuff I was going to get when I did my tranny flush.

Well I didnt know if you put the synthetic type in. I wish I could get the trickshift at the pricec you got it at. Itll cost me over $100 to get as many quarts as you did.
