Do I need to buy a additional pan gasket? If so how much are these? What kind of Transmission fluid are you guys using? Where to buy it and how much does it cost? What do you use to put the fluid back in?

If you have a cobra then you dont need or even have a pan gasket. You just have a simple drain plug and theses a fill plug just above it. Use about 3-3.2 liters of mercon ATF.

I used GM synchromesh for mine, expensive stuff! Like $9 a bottle, used around 4 I think if I remember correctly, I think I bought 5 just in case! When I bought it, the guy asked what I was putting it in and i told him a Cobra and he had to take a double take! Was bought at a GM dealer, that was funny! I drained it in a pan closed the hole up and squirted in the fill hole with pump oil can, that took forever! When doing again I will find a much easier way to put it back in...

Had the car on a hydraulic jack to get to the tranny!

Hope that helps some!

I kinda think that syncromesh and mtf robs HP. ATF is litte more than a coolant and not much of a lube, Its keeps your trans temp down.
