flush it with the cheapest oil bud.

then use proper tq95 (multisyn??) or better trans fluid with the last 10L of flushing.

theres no use wasting $$$$'s on oil if its just going to be for flushing.

Bad idea. Use TQ95 to fill AND flush. BTr'S are very sensitive to needing the right fluid.

+1

BTR's are sensitive full stop.
Incorrect fluid level = Waaaah
High temp = Waaah
Wrong fluid = MASSIVE Waaaaaah
Too long between services = More Waaaah...
You get the picture. :)
