    Default Opinions wanted on Procomp TH400 trans pan

    Hey fellas,

    Long time since ive been on this site! To be honest, ive been on Facebook and completely forgot about AussieV8! How dare I?!

    Just a quick question though, I know that procomp is usually frowned upon when it comes to the automotive world... but how bad are these trans pans actually?

    I mean, afterall, its only a pan, how bad could they be?

    Cheers

    Whats the worst that could happen? Could leak thats about it.. Also has speedmaster cast in it, if you were to ever want to sell the transmission and someone saw it they might think you have more parts from speedmaster in it.

    Hi
    leaks from a warped gasket surface
    leaks from being porous
    both easily identifiable and covered under warranty

    Looks like a direct B&M copy, same filter pick up spacer, 1/8 sensor port and valley in pan.

    They don't support the filter all that well so you would want to make your own support for that if you buy it.
    Sometimes the filter will touch the side of the pan, always good to check pan lines up with out the gasket to see if the filter fouls.

    If the filter does drop off the pick up down the track it wont be such a cheap purchase.

    I had a guy give me a Procomp C4 pan , i was curious to see what it was like . It is surprisingly not too bad . He had used it and no leaks.

    I had a good look over some that were on display at SEMA . I'd prob buy again. Dollarwise they are hard to beat really.

    A friend of mine got a new mill and was trying it out , the logo comes off pretty easy

    I know you can get B&M deep pans for 250... but I can get this one for 150. seeing as im off work with a busted neck and looking at surgery... id prefer to save $$ where I can... if it goes to shit, so be it. No one will know if no one tries it..

    just about every damn thing is made in China now, it's just a question of say B&M leaning on the Chinese manufacturing company to keep quality control.
