Pretty sure they come pre filled and ready to rock. Not certain on the that though. I know they use Schaeffer oil. It would be a good idea just to have some on hand though if you needed some down the road. Excellent choice, you will be more than pleased with your new tranny!

Oh ok, gotcha. Have they already shipped it? If not, call them and get the fluid or find out how much you will need. They are always super nice to talk to.

your gonna need around 19 qts, depending on your coolers, mine took 20qts

its like 190 for a 5 gal bucket of their schaefers fluid. and no it does not come pre filled, it will come with directions on filling it but
you start with 15qts then start it and put in about 4 more qts check levels
