What fluid to run?

What is a good fluid to run in the 4R100? I know the kind just wondering if there is any better ATF than Valvoline?

And does anyone know where the best price is for a BTS TC and VB?

Yeah but i think that oil has a mercon V app. I've heard that is bad if your not running a BTS or like tranny due to the fact that, they replace the parts that mercon V does not like. Thats just what i've read so far but i don't know. That's why i was asking on here.

MERCON V was changed to make it compatible with the 4R100.
