fluid capacity of a ford C6 Transmission

What is the capacity of a c6 trans, i havn't been able to find a definative answer. Was thinking it was around 25pts but not sure now

Also which fluid would you suggest for a trans seeing about 260hp and 350ft-lbs?

from what I read in the book the c-6 takes 12.5 quarts and according to what you are saying, you only have 9 quarts in your tranny. I think you are just suppose to put a quart in the converter as well, from what I was told.

thanks a bunch.

So for a standard fluid change i wouldn't have to take the fluid out of the convertor...just looking at changing the filter, and putting a new pan gasket on, so i'd just need 11.5 quarts.

If you just drained the pan, it would take about 4-6 quarts, if I remember right. 11.5 quarts will put it extremely high, without draining the convertor. Also make sure that you check it warm, on level ground, and with the trans in park.
