No hype. Only facts.

For some reason they only recommend the products they make money on. They don't make a cent on AMSOIL. AMSOIL made sure of that. And pass the savings on to the consumers.

Re tested by Allison (or any other manufacturer)

If they test it, and approve it then when (if) the transmission breaks down under the warranty period they have to make good.. If they do not test it then they can say "Oh, Unapproved Fluid" and your lawyer, and theirs, both go out and buy a new yahat. (After all who wins in a civil case... The lawyers of course).

Would I put the cooler on if doing that level of work, YES up to a seriously frozen point (Allisons tests their designs at temps as low as -40, possibly lower) I'd have to say cooler is better so go-4-it even if the tranny is runnign normal now. There is only one way it can hurt, if it's poorly made and blows a seam.

Great info. Thanks. Hopefully I can tap in from a stock design. From what I understand the AT 542 has 2 filters..one internal and one external in line. Is the internal filter difficult to replace? Also I am wanting to install new engine water temp gauge along with trans gauge but I would like these to cosmetically match (old school 2 inch black faced) Not a deal breaker but I was going to see if y'all had a link. Although that tranny technically can handle 230 hp... would y'all turn up the Cummins given the age of the coach? It runs flawless with 76k but still old.
Thanks!
Brandon

Actually, vehicle warranties only cover manufacturing defects, not fluid failure. They have to prove the fluid failed, and if they throw the fluid away, then they cannot prove the fluid failed. That is why I recommend using fluids that warranty against fluid failure, even for extended intervals.
