definitely add a TC to the rebuild.

You don't want the stocker coming apart and wrecking the goodies you are putting in there.

take care~

Actually it is more like dumping the old oil from the filter back into the crankcase.

Get a rebuilt stocker then, they can be had for $300..

I wouldnt do a trans without replacing and upgrading a TC.
