MAG-HYTECH PAN my 2

I hear alot of people saying don't waste your money on it. Well I disagree totally,I purchased one for my 5r110 and I can say that I am pleased with it. Not only do I have the piece of mind that it helps make the case it's self stronger, it also does keep the fluid cooler. Now the stronger quote I base this on the fact that the pan is so much thicker than the stock pan, I mean you can't argue with thicker is better. Now the temperature argument I hear is that it is not proven. Well in my case it is. I drive 45 miles one way to work and with the old pan, my temp would get up to around 165, now with the pan and the extra 8 quarts my temp only gets to 150-155. Now when it is 95 outside verses 80 I can tell a difference, so I'm sure my tranny can tell it too. So I'll take stronger and cooler anyday not to mention it does look good too!

I went the DeRale route $ 125 cheaper; it's not cast aluminum but it holds 7-8 quarts more fluid and I can use the 08 filter and yes it keeps the transmission cooler and it cools down quicker due to the larger surface area of the pan.

It is better only because you can put an. 08 filter in it; it does not add any extra fluid though.

I got the maghytec pan when I had andy warren build my trans. I was very pleased with the quality. I hadn't seen a derale pan in person so I couldn't compare the two.

People say the late 08+ pan is better because the earlier pans just have a screen inside but the earlier trucks had an external filter. Is there any evidence that the internal filter of the later trucks does a better job than the external filter or did Ford simply make a change when they repackaged the front of the truck to accommodate all the clutter of the 6.4's engine bay?

The 08+ filters all the fluid as it goes through the transmission, the external filter on the earlier trucks is a bypass filter so only some of the fluid that is picked up from the pan is getting filtered.

Can you run an 08 filter with the mag pan? Or maybe get an 08 mag pan for your 6.0?
