Derale 8 quart pan - anybody use this ?

Looking for feedback on this one:

(Derale does not have pics for the 14208 on their site yet, so using ebay for pics).

E4OD 4R100 5R110 5R110W Derale Transmission Pan Cooler - eBay (item 130464441376 end time Jan-09-11 10:11:39 PST)

This fits my budget better than the aluminum pans, and I like the capacity, and that it has the drain plug AND Temp sensor bung installed.

The design makes sense to me... it should be the overkill I'm looking for.

1) I'm mainly wondering about the overall build quality.... (I have enuff leaky pipes to keep me busy already.....) ?

2) Is the filter clip substantial enough to keep the filter in place ? I've seen on one of the PATC sites the clip that holds the filter UP, for $6 I may just order that one.

Thnx, Rgds, Dave.

Longer to heat and longer to cool it down..will gain nothing..$$ better spent on a 6.0 31 row trans cooler.

Thnx Cary.....

I hear you on the trans cooler, I'll get back to that below...

Here's where I'm at:

- new to me this Fall, '01 E350, 7.3, just over 100k miles

- been working thru the fluid changes, want to do the ATF sooner
rather than later (looks/smells not bad, but want fresh stuff
in soon), so will be pulling the pan anyway....

Longer to Heat I get, and I have considered that, since I live
in the Great White North (Ontario, Canada). The vehicle is not
a daily driver, so I can live with warm up time.

Not sure I get your point about longer to Cool.... given a
particular (ie. fixed) BTU load are you not better off with
a Larger volume of coolant (in this case ATF), than a smaller
one ?

I'm pretty easy on my vehicles, I'm doing this to enhance
reliability, not to build a smoker/monster puller - so I
don't plan on dealing with REALLY crazy trans temps.

Your point is well taken though... I've heard the 6.0 coolers
are a worthwhile upgrade.... gotta see what it takes to bolt
one on an Econoline, after I get the ATF changed (budget,
budget,budget.....).

Does that 6.0 cooler have a thermostat/bypass built in ? (Re. warmup time).
Ballpark price ?

I've heard that the 6.0 water pumps have to move something
like 75 gallons/minute to keep the EGR in the proper temperature
range - the thermal loads on these 6.0's seem pretty hellacious,
that trani cooler seems like it has a lot more to deal with on
those motors than just trani temp - upside for us is we have
a great cooler upgrade available for older motors !

Best Wishes for '11. Dave.
