    What’s the deep trans pan used for?

    Larger ATF capacity. Helps to reduce flaring.

    Is it better to get a bigger pan, or add a cooling system, to control flare?

    Adding a decent external cooler is always good insurance.
    Adds fluid to the capacity, and keeps temps under better control.
    My stock Redline sometimes flares when cold, but the Maloo and Magnum are both fitted with factory big external coolers, and they've never had a problem.

    Excellent, that has helped cement my decision to go get that work done. Are there any premium brands, that would be better to choose? I'd rather buy the best option rather than save money. Cheers for that.

    I would suggest the factory set up, but I'm sure you can get high quality coolers that will be a lot cheaper.

    Okay, do you sometimes get the feeling when you talk to the dealer about modifications, that it's all-too-hard to find the parts when they are not on the system against your VIN...?! This is what my dealer is like. I will ring them on Monday! Cheers.

    I'm pretty lucky to have a good relationship with the local dealer and the part guys.
    The big expense with the factory set up will be the fluid lines, they're mostly ridged tubes, not much in the way of flex lines.
    Where as most aftermarket kits will be flex lines.
    You could always ask one of the members here if you could 'borrow' a VIN from an MSE?

    Good call, I have a few mates with HSVs, I will see if they are close enough. I can always go to another dealer too! There must be loads in Brisbane willing to help. Money talks.

    That would work! My E3 Maloo and Magnum use the same cooler set up.

    I'm no expert. But, flaring can occur when they're cold. I've experienced this myself. But yeah, a trans cooler may help when hot I suppose. Re the large capacity pan, I think it's a combination effect of more ATF, dealing with heat exchange, less foaming and a larger capacity pick up allowing supply of sufficient ATF. Those whom have fitted them seem to think they're a good thing. My MSE has a factory cooler, I'll be fitting the deep pan and pickup to it. My Redline too, along with a cooler.

    i think the deeper camaro pan is a good thing, especially if you do track days, the big mouth longer oil pickup and litre extra oil will help under hard cornering , and braking, towing ect helps keep trans oil temps down and makes sure the pick up is covered in oil.
    cheap mod that can't hurt

    If you're towing, an external cooler is really good insurance.
