Mag Hi-Tec Trans pan worth it?

So I tow alot, boat and 10k travel trailer. Should I upgrade to a bigger pan? Or stock is sufficient. After the tune and delete not sure it it would be needed. Sorry if it s a dumb question.

Where these are 150k interval fluid changes to begin with, I think you'll be fine. If you want to change it for aesthetics, or have it hold an extra quart or 2, you would be still fine, though not needed.

I have thought the same thing however I believe changing the fluid more frequently or even a pan drain and fill would be better. Not sure if they make big coolers for trans or not but I am sure ford thinks the trans is cool enough. Some of the temps guys have posted who tow heavy or hilly seems hot, but I am not an engineer who designed the trans. I used to rebuild transmissions 15 years ago but a lot has changed I guess, fluid, parts etc.

It's been proven several times and backed up by an ex-Ford transmission guy that larger pans do zero.....well they drain your wallet.

Not saying it doesn't, not saying it does but I liked Derales pans with the air lines that are built into the pan.

Not sure your tranny thinks your load is “a lot”, your fine. I tow doubles too, 26k and 4K. The tranny gets up to high 230s but it won’t get higher. There is the whole “secondary” cooling system to keep it in check.

I agree with the more frequent trans service I did a filter and refill at about 60K. and to the OPs question the stock config is fine. I would only suggest pan replacement if you dont have a drain plug

I did the ats pan with the lower pick up and it’s only cooler on short trips on long trips it can get a little hotter due to it takes longer to cool more fluid

Replaced my previous 2012 truck with a mag, it was pretty much for aesthetics I couldn't notice any improvements on temps.
