    I was checking a while back and thought deep trans pans with dipsticks were not available anymore for 05-10 autos.... but seen this tonight...

    Will this fit and clear with my longtube headers?

    I might have an extra pan and dipstick in my garage somewhere. I think its PA pan. I thought it added an extra 4 qts but I could be wrong. It never interfered with my headers but I know I've caught it on the ground a couple of times. Let me see if I can find it this weekend.

    I have the Performance Automatic pan for the 5r55s on my 2010 auto. It holds an extra 4 qts, and came with a locking style dipstick and drain plug, + new longer bolts and gasket. The dipstick opening is big enough to add ATF if required. However, PA no longer makes the deeper pan for the 05-10 cars.

    This unit in the above url is made by trick flow, same idea, but no cooling ribs..and only holds an extra 2 qts. Flip side is, the PA unit I have is exactly 2.1" deeper than OEM.... and may cause issues clearing the ground, in some cases. I never had a problem, even with front lowered by 1"..and the PA pan easily cleared my JBA LT's. Extra ATF capacity is a moot point. I bought it for the dipstick. PITA not being to measure ATF level with oem goofy setup. While I was at it, I also installed the JDM engineering 5r55s catch can. Then no more puking ATF all over the ground. Also used RP.."max ATF" Also installed a B+M 13 k BTU auto tranny cooler ( Bar + plate type) in series with the oem tranny cooler.

    This is the bs you have to go through when a small blower is used.

    Ok let me know if you find it and want to sell it.

    I bought a case of RP, an oil gun, filter, and shift solenoids when I first got the car because 1st to second would slip/lagshift sometimes when cold but since ive had the steeda tune it tightened up shifting and havnt had issues.
    I planned on doing the brass bushings and solenoid packs but i think im just going to change fluid/filter/and pan with dipstick for now.
