It very well may not matter, but just a thought.
Oh, the fluid from the torque converter and valve body does drain, but it takes 4-5 hrs to do so, I know friends that left the car draining overnight and filled ~11 quarts the next morning. When I did my old 530 it was draining for about 5-6 hrs and I added nearly 11 quarts.
