This B&M pan paired with the 2wd filter will still be sucking from the bottom of the pan. also I do plan on going with a 6.0 cooler too, but I just picked this pan up for $50 so I figured a little extra fluid capacity couldn’t hurt. all I was really looking for was possibly someone who had ran into this same situation with a similar pan. Thanks
im running a PML pan... but if i could do it over again i would of just stuck with the stocker.... i have a total of 3 trans coolers which keep the trans oil temp in check.....
problem is that yes it adds 3 more qts and prob does keep it cooler for a lil bit but once it heats up your stock cooler has to cool down more oil... it will keep the oil hotter for longer period of time....
