I recently purchased this for my daughter's "new to me" car. Prior to installation, I have a scan tool which we used live and in real time. Her transmission oil temp. was in the 190s range at cruise long enough to reach equilibrium. One hard acceleration (on purpose to see what would happen) and her fluid was at 212F. AFTER installing this pan (and a ZZP shift kit, along with 8 qts new fluid) for a pan drop fluid & filter change, her trans. fluid at cruise fully warmed is now 167-174F. Got tired of repeated hard accelerations on a deserted stretch of highway to "see" if temps would rise. This pan WORKS and the scan tool proves it. My daughter is NOT a NASCAR driver; she is very gentle and her lowered Transmission temps (along with the shift kit) have the real world possibility of doubling her transmission life.
