I just droped a TH400 into my 67 Chevelle SS. When I looked under the car, the stock pan is dented and rusted more than I thought. What's a cool and functional trans pan anyone has had good luck with or any negative responce to pans you haven't liked. Thankx

I put on an aluminum pan from TCI. It holds a couple more quarts over the stocker. It has cooling fins on it to dissipate heat. And a handy drain plug to make changing fluid alittle neater. It was pricey at about $90 through Summit racing. It did come with all hardware and a gasket.

I running the pan by Derael or something like that, its in the summit catalog for 65-70 $$...it holds 1 quart more than stock and has cooling tubes that go completely thru the pan, so far so good, the 350th is holding up behind my big block without a cooler, but that will be added soon,since the hot humid summer days are coming....I like the pan,it dont leak,and apparently it does what it says...my .02 cents

i have the tci pan...very nice but after installation the internal linkage was binding so off it came and the die grinder came out.

also hangs low as my headers so i am concerned about bottoming out on a bad bump

Alunimum is excellent but will break rather than dent if hit. Steel works great, just don't use a chrome one. It will retain heat in the fluid. Black is the best color, dissapates heat very well. A drain plug is a definite plus.
