I have about 1000 miles on my GTO. Just wondering when this 6-speed Trans will feel broken in. I remember one other post saying around 1500 miles. Any thoughts? Thanks everyone!

I do love this ride!!!!!

My 02 Z06 has essentially the same tranny. I changed my tranny fluid to a good synthetic at 800 miles and it felt good to go at that point. I recommend AMSOIL ATF, a Dexron III fluid, for the tranny in the GTO. :cheers

It took about 5,000 miles before mine even started to feel normal. At 10,000 it was about as good as it's gonna get. But, this gearbox is never gonna be as smooth or quick as some Japanese or Euro boxes. Maybe it's the price you pay for being able to handle 400 ft/lbs. Oh yeah, and below 40 deg F it stiffens up considerably for the first 15 minutes.
