    New Tranny Pan

    Hello, I am getting ready to install a Yank 3600 in my car. I already have a trans cooler and I am getting a TCI flexplate. I would like to get a different trans pan with cooling fins and a drain plug. I would prefer one with stock capacity rather than one that holds 2 extra quarts. I was looking at this one

    What pans are you guys running an your 4l60E's? Thanks.

    I'm running a stock truck pan. They hold about 1/2 qt more and have a drain plug. No cooling fins, but the pan doesn't sacrifice any ground clearance.

    I really like it. I rebuilt my tranny 5 years ago and its still living with a 3200 RPM stall and daily driving. I canít say its all from the pan, but the pan and the aftermarket tranny cooler together is probably why it's still living strong. Also with the pan having a plug itís easy to change the fluid, so I change the fluid and filter every year. To some it up I liked it so well that I put one on my Corvette and well on my Dodge Ram when they come out with one for it.

    Awesome, I'm putting a 3600 stall in and wanted a little extra cooling and really like the design of that pan. Did you need a filter extension? Does the dipstick still work with that pan?

    No filter extender was need because the filter rest right above the cooling tubes, which is where it normally would be located stock. The dip stick still works normally; itís just that the pan being a little deeper requires you to put one more quart of fluid in. Extra fluid + transmission cooler + a pan that has some type of heat sink all add up to lower transmission operating temps.

    I wish they had put fitings on it and looped it all together so you could run a water cooler through it.
    Dose it help with trans temps at all?

    No personal data, but according to them its worth 20 to 50 degs. For the tubing if you took the time you could connect the tubing and run a water cooler with it.
