68RFE install questions (revmax 700)

So like many others my heavy foot has killed 5th and 6th gear in my 68RFE. I took the plunge and ordered a Revmax Signature 700. Revmax was very helpful in picking the exact specification of my order. The new transmission will be a Signature 700, 17 Blade low stall converter, Cooler bypass delete and the upgraded billet center support. I'll be installing the new transmission after hours at a dealership with a few former mopar techs. I've been doing alot of hunting and still have a few questions.

First some hardware questions. From my experience on my car its a good idea to replace some of the bolts so I was planning on replacing the flexplate and converter bolts. Mopar part numbers I found are 04429522 for the flexplate and 06508406AA for the converter bolts, Can anyone confirm? Also I saw ARP makes flexplate bolts for the 5.9 are they the same for the 6.7 (P/N 147-2901)?

Second a two part fluid question. Revmax says any ATF 4+ trans fluid, has anyone heard anything more specific for this transmission? Figure I'll change the t-case fluid while I'm in there so I found its mopar specific P/N 68089195AA is that correct?

Lastly are there any tips, tricks, special tool reccomendations from anyone whose tackled this before?

Thanks for any help.

I'm unsure of the hardware, but have you cross referenced the 5.9 mopar part number to 6.7? That should tell you pretty quickly.

I think most built trans guys say to use dex, so I'd double check that.

Special tools, well, a barring tool is nice for converter bolts but not necessarily needed. Otherwise it's normal sockets, wrenches and heavy lifting.

Thanks, I'll add the barring tool to my list. I tried cross referencing the part number for the 5.9 and 6.7 but have seen different answers from different parts suppliers.

Looks to be the same. I'd call ARP to double check because their website is atrocious.

Thanks everyone, ended up ordering Mopar fluids and bolts. The arp flexplate bolts should fit but I did not get that confirmed. The part number of Mopar flexplate bolts and ARP are both listed as M12 x 1.25 thread. The length should also work ARP UHL is .7" (converted to mm 17.78) Mopar was 18mm.
