Changing out the fluids

Is it wise since I will be changing the front & rear diff fluids to install a new diff cover like, ATS, Magtech. Would like some insite on this I will be putting down more HP in the future but as on now I'm mostly stock with a SCT tune.

Thanks guys

You can upgrade to late model covers. Mag tech is a bit much for my blood!

I have the Mag-Tech and like it just fine, it's way overpriced, but it does
hold 6 qt's of fluid. I was told you can go to the dealer and get the 08 cover
for less than 50 bucks.

I second the 08 cover. Hard to beat for the money. Of course the aftermarket covers are great id you have the $$$.

if you dont feel like tracking down the longer bolts needed, Diesel Manor sells the cover with hardware/fasteners...not sure you'd really be saving anything money wise but could save you time if you dont feel like finding the right bolts, which shouldnt be too hard.
