I'm looking to do the 6.4 trans pan and filter upgrade on my 2006 F350 but I'm a little confused with the actual pan I need

I'm looking online and every 2008-10 pan I'm seeing looks exactly the same as my 06 pan. Externally at least. And every write up and youtube video I've watched, their pans look the same as mine.

Are the 08-10 pans the same externally but different internally?

I'm looking at getting this cheap pan which says it's for a 6.4 powerstroke

and this filter

Can anyone confirm that's what I need for the job?

I just upgraded my pan less than a week ago. The filter is right. The pans will look different on the inside. The deepest part of the sump is wider on the 6.4L pan, allowing for the highly improved FT-180 filter. Let me snoop around real quick and find the part number.

I found the following info on the Dornan aftermarket pan. Expect to pay $40-60 for an aftermarket pan. It references the oe part #:
3C3Z-7A194-AA
Also, do your trannie a favor and replace the TP Roll bypass filter behind your front bumper (Motorcraft part #FT-145).

Thanks, I picked up that filter, and now I'm looking for pans. It's kind of confusing since externally they look the same. So many sellers have extremely cheap pans that make me wonder if it's the right thing

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Transmission-Oil-Pan-265-822-for-Ford-E-350-F-250-F-350-Super-Duty-3C3Z7A194AA/182610417937?hash=item2a846dd911:g:5OEAAOSwXitcPoyk

This listing has the correct OEM part number and the correct dorman 265-822 part number as well

Here on summit they have an actual dorman pan with the correct dorman part number. I may just end up ordering from them.

I actually think the correct part number is 8C3Z-7A194-B

https://www.riffraffdiesel.com/transmission-upgraded-pan-6-0l-6-4l/ shows that part number as the upgraded 6.4 pan

and here

Sorry! Something went wrong!

This listing on amazon shows this pan being bought with the FT180 filter
You are correct on that part number and the filter part number is 8C3Z-7A098-D (FT180 is correct also).

IMO Dorman quality is suspect. They may have gotten this one right, but for critical parts, I don't trust them.

Sounds good, I got that FT180 filter and bought an OEM ford pan off of amazon. Looks like I'm good to go!

When I did mine, I bought:
Filter: FT-180
Pan: 8C3Z-7A194-B

I feel like the filter didnt sit as solid as the old one. I wondered if i doubled up the filter gaskets, one on top of the other, it might sit better.

Other than that it was an easy swap.

I ‘upgraded’ to a deep sump pan. After towing and running some highway miles, I have to say it’s probably not much better than a stock pan. Transmission temps are about 5 degrees cooler while towing and 10 degrees cooler on the highway. That doesn’t justify the price. I did get to buy 6 extra quarts of Mercon SP... The biggest reason to upgrade is having the FT-180 filter.

Yeah, I'm not really doing it for cooler temps although that will be helpful even if it's just a few degrees. It's mostly for the better filtration and the fact that I'll be changing my fluid and filter anyways. So really I'm just paying 68 bucks extra for a pan.

Yeah, I ####ed up and ordered one from Rock Auto that was listed under ‘08, but arrived being the same as my ‘06. Not happy that I had to get a crap screen filter again, next time I’ll try and get the right pan. Still have the filter for the ‘08 at least.
