Mag Hy-Tec Transmission Pan

I did a search and only found threads about the diff covers...anybody running the Mag Hy-Tec tranny pan? I bought a double-axle enclosed car hauler to tow my 3,800 pound car and I want to take prevenative measures. I heard the pan will lower tranny temps 20 degrees due to the cooling fins and increased capacity. I plan on getting the mag hy-tec tranny pan and diff cover, 6.0 tranny cooler, and converting to synthetic fluids (already running the Rotella T6 full synthetic in the engine). Hoping this keeps me on the cooler side of temps. Anyone seen results with the tranny pan?

You won't see any worthwile gains with the pan. The 6.0 cooler on the other hand will keep temps in check.

^ agree the marginal gain by the pan doesn't really help with anything. I would just run the 6.0 cooler and call it a day.

So basically the smarter option is to scrap the tranny pan idea, get an '08 diff cover, 6.0 trans cooler, synthetic fluids and save myself $700. Thanks for the input.

The 08 diff cover will not gain you anything...

It looks pretty, but nothing more then that. And yes, I have one, as well as a diff temp sender.

Hmm interesting. One thing that is nice about the 08+ diff covers is they won't rust out like the stamped metal stockers. Mine was really bad when I replaced it.

+1000 on the 6.0 tranny cooler!!!!
I was having temp issues before, slapped the 6.0 cooler in and now it doesnt get over 145 with out a load. keep in mind I run 37's and a 6'' lift so theres a lot more load on it empty than a stock truck. 185-190 towing is the highest Ive ever seen it get. Make sure you get the 34 row one, theres a smaller one out there in some 6.0s.
FWIW my tranny guy told my that those big cast alum. pans act like a heat sink, yah it takes a little longer to heat up but once it gets hot it wont want to cool very quick. Say your pulling a hill and it gets scary hot by the top so your hoping it will cool down on the down hill. No good.
Also a good converter will help you keep temps down too, if you have the money to burn I would put a Precision Industries Pink Stallion in there and a 6.0 cooler and youll be set!
That's what i have, Love it!

There are three flavors of 6.0 trans coolers:

25 row, very limited number of those
31 row - 5C34-7A095-CA
26 row - 5C34-7A095-CB

Per a former ford trans engineer the cooling difference between the 31 and 26 is de minimis. I have seen 31 row fetching an $100 premium over the 26 row...which is ridiculous.
