If you are starting with a new trans and convertor 7 quarts is a good place to start, you don't want to overfill a 200.

Go to Turbo Action's website-there is a tech bulletin outlining fluid levels for metric 200s

Yes M.J. I have a dipstick, but it is a Lokar and they are tough to read
the same day you put oil in them. I just wanted some other opinions
to get it close when I fired it up. Tough crowd tonight.

It's important that you check the calibration of your dipstick . With a stock pan the " Full Hot" line should be at the same level as the pan gasket . Keep in mind that Full Hot means the fluid is at 200 degF . The factory dipstick also has a min line which is at the bottom of the cross hatch marks . The min line is a full mark at 70 degF. You want to make sure the fluid level never exceeds the Full Hot line , because if the Fluid gets up into the rotating parts , it will froth up like a milkshake . This will cause all kinds of problems , the worst being oil out the breather which, if it gets on hot parts , could cause a fire .

If it has an extended pick up on it then you don't need anymore fluid than with the stock pan.
