Today I installed a TCI deep transmission pan.

They don't come cheap, but you really get something!
Just search the www for transmission pan TF904 and you will find them.
I bought mine on the Evil bay, but here is an example too:
http://www.indy-autoparts.com/store/pro ... =TCI127900
It holds two exta quarts, gives better cooling and most of all it is rigid and has a machined sealing surface.

I put the Eagle on bricks to get 3" more working space.

I installed the new filter and spacer with gasket that comes with the pan.

Here with the new pan installed, I was worried about the space to get the new pan in between the exhaust and the transmission cross beam, I needed to shoehorn it in with a small crow bar, using the flexibilty of the exhaust pipe.
I was also worried about reaching the bolts between the exhaust and the pan. The bolts are 1/4" hex, so I used my 6mm Allen key, which is a bit smaller, so I could keep it at an angle.

Yes, I removed the Allen key after the picture was taken :)
No leaks so far, but I will report how it is doing over time.

Looks great. You need to get you some ball end hex keys. They work great on angles.

Took me some time to find this thread. This is a major improvement to the original leaky pan and for $160 it is one of the best things you can buy for the price.
