    T56's... Does year matter on blocker rings?

    Sorry for posting in this section but I wanted to ask quickly on my phone. I've been searching and want a definite answer and you guys I trust the most. So....

    T56 (M6's)... For ATF. A lot use amsoil, some
    Mobile, some basic dex III, some Penn, etc.
    I wanna know If the claims saying that 2002+ or 01+ t56's came with carbon (or carbon lined) blocker rings instead of the paper ones. Preferably someone that's had one apart and saw themselves. I was curious as to if I should use advance auto/castrol dex III or mobile 1 synthetic ATF.

    It's a terrible debate and I don't wanna start a war. Simply if I most likely have carbon or paper rings.
    I have an '02 WS6 made in June.

    I have built a few t-56's and out of the ones i had apart the only ones that had upgraded blocker rings were those that have been built. If you are curious due to which fluid to use i would say from my experience to stay away from synthetic.

    As said above i would never use a synthetic is a t-56 just from my experience of replacing others blocker rings. Alot of guys who come in the shop will buy and use the cheapest dex III they can find. You will just have to find your preference and stick with it
