Default Filling a dry transmission...

It's been a while since I have had to do anything with a slush box, been driving mainly stick shifts since I started driving. Anyway, I got the 4l60e rebuilt for my new project, and I'm just about to the point where I'll be reinstalling it.

I just wanted to confirm what I remember from the last time I helped a friend with a new transmission. Pour a quart or two in the torque converter before it is slid into the transmisson. Install transmission and transfer case. Once it is all bolted up and plugged in and ready, pour 4/5 quarts into the transmission. Start the truck and continue to add fluid, 4/5 quarts while cycling through each gear. I have read anywhere from 8-10(even 12) quarts of fluid, obviously I'd start checking the level around the eight quart mark.

Sound about right? I don't want to hurt the new piece of gold going under the truck. Your input would be appriciated!

Sounds like standard operating procedure. It's what I do.
