I'm about to do the trans mod on my '94 Bird w/3.8 and I just wanted to make sure I have everything I need. Here is the list and if anything is missing, please let me know.
#1. More than enough Merc-V Fluid ( I got 2cases. $50 a case. OUCH!)
#2. Trans pan with deep sump (Also installed drain kit from B&M)
#3. Filter kit from Fram w/pan gasket
#4. Updated 1-2 & 2-3 Accum. piston and cover
#5. Separator gasket (upper and lower)
#6. New spring for 1-2 accum. (got the part # off the tech article)
#7. New updated Torque Converter (#f8az-7902-aarm. BTW this su**er cost me $330. Is this the going price?)
#8. Trans cooler from B&M (24,000)
Also, not related to trans, but I will install new u-joint while I'm at it and will also upgrade the trans mount and crossmember bushing to that of MN12 performance bushing kit.
I hope this is all I need. I am planning to do this next week on my day-off and I hope two-days will be enough time. Any input will be appreciated.
As always, thanks guys.
94' Thunderbird LX - nice car!
3.8, wanna change to some kind of v-8 soon, wish had a Trac-loc, wish had set of 17inch, may settle with 16inch, wishing harder for true-dual. Wishing even harder for new paint job! Help!
