$375 - Check/Money Order
$406 - PayPal

Hey lightnin, I just passed my 60K maintenance and skipped out on the tranny fluid change. I've done some snoopin' around the forum and the tranny fluid is pretty good from the factory and some guys don't touch it until around 100K. Most of the time guys will wait until they replace the clutch to replace the tranny fluid. Depending on how its driven and if has ever been abused, its something (on the SVT's) that isn't a necessity at 60K.

i was talking to randy at focus sport one time, i asked about the tranny fluid they had and when i should change mine, he told that most people never change their tranny fluid. and problems can definately follow after a tranny fluid change. ask around buddy.
