I used the blau kit and installed the transgo pressure regulator valve at the same time

However, I had to essentially do the job twice because of a dumb mistake. When putting the car in reverse for the test drive, the car drove forward and almost crashed into my workbench... I had forgotten to realign the manual shift valve, so everything had to be taken apart again. I anticipated the fluid would be pretty nasty and since I was on a time crunch, I made the decision to go to the local autozone and use the valvoline maxlife atf instead of waiting for the expensive German fluid. It shifts great now, although it didn't have any real issues before. I did not use any lubeguard because I didn't see a need for it.
