Re: Better tranny pan!

I don't know about their trans pans, but i am really happy with my mag hytec rear end cover. I can only imagine that the quality is the same

I have the Mag-Hytec one and I really like it.... very heavy duty and strong.... I have heard people say that they help hold the tranny case from warping and such...

Mag Hytec, it looks sick, has a drain plug so fluid change is easy........Already has an output for your temp gauge..........And drops the temps 25-50 deg.

Re: Better tranny pan!

I have heard mixed things about using a bigger pan. I have heard using a bigger cooler is more efficient. A bigger pan just slows down the heating of the fluid, it doesn't really help in a long term hard use only in short term. However Mag Hytech pans are really cool.

They remind me of old Mickey Thompson Valve covers.

Re: Better tranny pan!

I just bought a Hughes Pan and it looks good. It was around $230.00 shipped. I could not afford a $400-$500 pan with spending all the dough on the rebuild.

Re: Better tranny pan!

I tried a PML one and like it just fine. There is more then one school of thought on this subject in regard to the benefit of larger then stock aluminum pans.

Re: Better tranny pan!

I understand and totally agree. And the pans look a lot cooler than a stock pan, and they won't rust. Do both a pan and a cooler.

Re: Better tranny pan!

I'd just keep the stocker unless you have money to burn & want it to look good.
