    Sounds like a good idea. Ive got a leaking real seal. As soon as I get that fixed I'm putting a mag hytec deep pan on it. Might as well do the filter mod as well

    Just looked at the mag hytec pans, looks cool. Wonder if you couldn't just tack some fins on your existing pan???

    The additional 8 quarts of fluid was what appealed to me really!

    It is a fact that deep dump tranny pans do wonders. The torqshift trannies on Fords are pretty strong but the old e4od trannies had a huge boost in life expectancy with a deep pan. Mine will be getting a tranny cooler from a 6.0 psd next week. My uncle is a senior master diesel tech for Ford and has sworn that deep sump pans make a huge difference. Oddly enough though, he says more ford trannies cook from bad tranny coolers then anything else.

    Interesting thread, Paul. I was wondering, if these filters are so effective, why is water/condensation filtration the factor that you base oil change timing on, isn't water easier to filter out of oil than other tiny oil impurities?

    Water should turn to steam in the oil and blow out a vent somewhere.

    Nope, the detergent in the oil allows it it to suspend in the oils chain and not steam out.

    wow I'm really surprised I have never read about centrifugal systems. Cool. Really might have to try that..

    Been thinking about putting together a remote system to clean hydraulic oil. This might work out well for that.
