    Is this Trick shift tranny fluid worth the 4 1/2 bones it costs at the parts store?

    I've wondered this myself. I was thinking about getting a quart or two and replacing some of my fluid with the Trick Shift. Anyone have ANY thoughts on this?

    Unless you have one of B&M's shift kits installed, I been told it's not worth the money.

    I have the shift kit in my TH350 and spent the mney on that SH!t and I cant tell a difference...
    Just my opinion... Maybe it does something else...
    But I cant feel a difference

    This is a type F fluid, and its OK to use on any tranny EXCEPT a GM one. There was a post a while about this, you might want to do a search, but if i remember right, it eats the tranny parts faster than regular ATF
