Just to clearify this statement a little. Deep tranny pans are not really extra cooling. The added fluid volume takes longer to change tempeture. Like in a power brake launch or running at max TQ of the motor creating heat from the stall slip.
Yes, volume is a good thing, but a big independant tranny radiator is better.
When ever I hear "vette only" internals
because the vette only used 700's in the early sub 400 hp motor years and they were junky transmissions. They required alot of aftermarket HD parts to survive in anything, but the wimpiest of motors
