i would not reccomend the deep pan...im not a believer... some people are...some people arent..

i would however reccomend putting an additional cooler on....dont get rid of your existing one...just put another in line with what you already have!!

thanks marc that was a quick reply! my tranny temps are hitting 170 with no load and im getting concerned. i was hoping to gain every possible advantage. im not happy about the prices or the extra 8 qts. of fluid that i would have to buy. my brother also thinks the deep pan may be to low and bottom out on curbs or bumps.

with a torqshift you can basically add 10 degrees to your temps...so your not all that hot empty...and you can run up to 210 towing.....

the problem IMO with a deeper pan is that even though it takes longer for that fluid to get hot.....when it does get warm it takes way longer to cool down...
