Transmission filter change

I am is the process of changing the transmission Filter in my 4 speed chevy transmission. I have two questions. What is the torque for the pan bolts? Also how much fluid will I have to add to fill it back up? I know I am asking a lot but thank you.

Snug. 18 lb/ft if you're getting technical. I use a dot of blue threadlocker as well. Don't crank them down; you'll bend the lip and it will leak forever. About six quarts will come out; put in four run it and check the dipstick to be sure you don't overfill it. Also, look at the dipstick for the type of fluid; 05 may be the transition year between Dexron III and Dexron 6, you don't want to mix the two regardless of what you hear to the contrary.

Any thoughts on the fill and flush like Honda recommends on cars? Since there is a large amount still in the converter once you empty and the drain bolt makes fluid swap easy.... On my CRV the recommendation is 3 times.
