Have You Changed Your A6 Trans Fluid?

So GM says our automatic transmission fluid is good for approximately 100,000 miles, and shouldn't need changing before that.
They same about the same thing with differential fluid, and as many have done, changed it and saw shavings and dark, burnt fluid.

A couple weeks ago we converted an L99 into an LS3 with cam, and installed an ECS supercharger. We looked over the car to ensure it would all be ok, which included checking the transmission fluid.

The car had 34,000 miles on it.
(Needless to say, we serviced the transmission, with new fluid and filter)

I talked with Ted Jannetty and with all the racing he does I figure he would know. Every 25K on transmission and rear end fluid. So that is what I do.

Wow check that out... We have done numerous A6 fluid changes on the Camaros/Vettes, depending on the abuse we have seen the same on even lower mileage cars!

Speaking of that ECS supercharger kit
