    It's worth it to get Mobil1 Synthetic, especially for 700R4 and the 208. Be very careful on fluid level in the 700. The 208 has nylon shoes on the selector forks, the slipperiest stuff will make them last the longest.:D

    The 208 only holds less then 2 quarts? I thought it held more then that.

    t-cases don't hold much, they are just a small gear box, but, a 700r4 could take up to 12 quarts if you flush the whole system(converter,cooler,etc)
