Default Promotion 3650s trans fluid

what transmission fluid should i put in my brand new promotion trans that is on its way. i ordered royal purple MAX ATF today but i am wondering if i should try to cancle the order and get something diffrent? i want nothing but the best for this transmission it costing to much to skimp on the most important part but if the Royal Purple MAX is fine i will just go ahead and put that in. on a side note i plan on changing the fluid again in 3000 miles just so i know the trans was broke in and to put some more clean fluid in.

That Question is seen alot here, From the past threads, Tremec uses certain specs(No official test with RP) however individual test from high profile shops say use Purple. That's for Tremec. I plan on using RP. My tranny is acting up. How much did it run you shipping and all if you mind me asking?

I find it hard to believe that a fluid that has been tested thousands of times and has been around for years is potentially harmful for your drivetrain components.

moonsine i kinda had the same thoughts as to how could a product be out and known from so many people if it damages drivetrain parts. i am starting to feel much better about my decesion and i will probably stick with the royal purple max atf
