My point exactly.

With additional cooler I went thru 2 complete 4L containers plus the third container about .5L, I gave Wutangmo15 some of my left over fluid for his coolers to top his off. I use the remaining in my RA recently. Worked out pretty good because It got me to post those pics. Adding a little bit of fluid smooth out the shifting experience.

The downside of having extra coolers is I would have to buy 3 containers instead of 2 every afew changes.

I double checked when I drain my fluid. No mistake unless my measuring tool was off. My highly sophisticate measuring tool in picture below.


Two drain pans was poured into my highly sophisticate measuring tool one at a time to 3L mark dump into another container twice with 1L mark on the last measure = 7L before i remove the stock cooler & lines...

So the best results (smoothest shifting) is around 7 to 7.5L eh. Interesting. Thanks for the info.

I will have to give that a try, as I used 6.5L at my most recent change. Only 6L came out, but that was changed by the dealer and I wouldn't be surprised if they got the amount wrong.

For my car, shifting has been smoother with that extra .5L of fluid in there, but still jerky on occasion. I will add a little more so it's around 7L in total and hopefully that will help things.

I have 2009, on 2010+ there slight variation. ie two drain plug opposed to three.
no confirmation on Liter amount for 2010+ so do this at your own risk!
I would say add .5L at a time. check & double check.

Thanks. I have an '09 with three drain plugs. Later this afternoon I'll be adding .5L of that lovely green stuff and see how she goes.

Pre & post?
I got SST tuned by [email protected] before I installed the upgraded coolers.

Kinda got lucky, I bought the coolers from [email protected] & got SST tuning.

So after sst tune I notice the difference in initial throttle response & smoother SST shifting.

I installed the additional coolers after, I drove it very very conservatively for about two weeks. To make sure I didnt have any leaks or destroy my SST, etc.. No leak = good.


I changed mine around 32k miles.

Fluid will lose its color after heat get to it over time.
Starts out neon green & will turn dark brown.

I still cant exactly describe how it smells. I will get back to you on that one. I can say It is not something I would like to inhale.

Cooler fluid should give you a bit longer life than fluid under thermal break down.

25k doesnt sound bad if you can afford to.

Im well over 38k miles. Still smooth..
