I looked for this I couldn't find it. Is it the same animal? Of coarse other than the springs. One other thing, how much should I plan on spending on a total swap for mercon V fluid? Is there a good filter that I should use?

just drop the valve body and drill the separator plate.

Install new valve body gaskets, and put fluid in it.

And you're done :)

Thanks for the info. Where can I order MERCON V from? All the parts stores around here just say HUH??? One other thing, Where can I find the electrical mod i need to do for the 98 MKVIII tranny?

Autozone, pep boys, etc... all carry Mercon V around here. Should cost about $40 for fluid. The 98 trans will have the better accumulators, but you may want to remove the lower 1-2 and definitely the 2-3 accumulator spring. So that and drill the plate. It's nice and easy.

Check my article in the WIP forum for correct pinouts/TCC info. The article may prove very useful for your swap.
