    I know you are sposed to break in new engines...and new gears...so I assume you are sposed to do something with a new slushbox. What are the basic guidelines? How many miles before I should be servicing it? is the standard fluid/filter all you need to do? any info appreciated,

    I had a th350 rebuilt a year ago, the guy at the shop said to just drive it, and change the fluid and filter after about 5000 miles. HTH

    wow, that just seems weird. I always figured there would be a 500 or 1000 mile service rule...kinda like with new engines. Oh well..if no dissenting opinions are posted...guess I'll just service it at the normal intervals. =)

    The guys at performance transmission told me to go nuts as soon as my RAPTOR was bolted up ... no need to take it easy or service it early
