i believe it says 60k mile serive for fluids.. howver.. thats not at the power levels or this usage. rear diff is 500 mile of track use, so im gonna do that one as well
In your case, I would say that's a good idea.

Received the trans filter today. I need to check the repair manual to see where this goes.
The filter looks similar to the engine oil filter, but shorter. Comes with 5 bolts and some o-rings. The bottom appears to have a relief valve inside.

Interesting, Don, keep us posted. How many miles do you have on yours now?

On another subject..I haven't seen a thing on the Snakes and Stangs site but I assume it was cancelled or rescheduled?

I have about 550 miles on it now. Most of that was driving back from Dallas.
The event was moved to mid-Sep, but I see they haven’t updated the site yet.

Here’s the trans fluid. Note it’s made in Germany.

I like to disassemble things.
Looking forward to seeing this go in.

I'm not ready to change this filter yet. Maybe after my first event (whenever that may be...)
But attached are the instructions from the Service Manual. Appears to be on the drivers side at the back of the clutch housing, behind the left side heat shield.

I am adding the instructions on how to check the transmission fluid that is referenced in the documentation on changing the side filter.

Don, which service manual are you using, Helm's or the one that Mark was showing elsewhere?

I bought the filter for $105.67 and the fluid was $31.78/qt (bought 3 qts for now), plus tax (no shipping).
I don’t plan to change all 8 quarts anytime soon, nor the other internal filter.

I bought my set from factory-manuals.com
Was $130 for a pdf download. The document is over 10,000 pages, and specific to the GT500.
The first 600 pages or so are all the user manuals that come with the car.

Yesterday was a busy day. Changed the diff fluid, trans filter and a normal oil change. Will gather my pictures and post some info in a bit.
