I am going to search for this write up today.
No need to search - I already linked to it on "Audipages" above.
Just click on it!

After you drain the ATF, there will be a bunch left in the pan so put the drain plug back in and be careful not to slop it all over when you drop the pan. Then you get another dump when you pop the filter off, and then the trans will rain ATF for an hour so keep that in mind.

If you are putting in the TransGo valve, which I recommend unless your trans is already too far gone, you get more ATF dropping out when the lower VB is unbolted and removed. IMO the only things a fluid change might fix are:
Underfilled (leaked?) fluid related issues like slipping or slow changing into 4th
Shudder from TC lockup due to lack of friction modifiers or too much crap in the fluid or something like that.
Wallet too fat
Driveway too clean

The transmission shifts perfectly. I thought that maybe the wiring going to the solenoid packs might have an issue so i was going to change the filter while I was in there.
