For those looking for transmission oil pan that provides the strength and durability required for performance applications, then look no further than Hughes Performance’s latest offering, the HP5283 Aluminum Oil Pan. The wizards at Hughes Performance took the time to design a pan with a thick pan rail to increase the strength in applications that utilize factory cases as well as an extra thick tab for the transmission temperature sensor.
For those who are not as mechanically inclined, the temperature sensor will need to be drilled out, so it might be worth a trip to a professional or an experienced friend for a little assistance or an excuse to showoff your new purchase. Along with strengthening, this aluminum transmission pan features extra capacity; in fact, this offering allows two additional quarts to be added, thus providing an additional cushion to your transmission.
In addition to the aforementioned benefits, Hughes Performance makes life easier by designing these pans with shift cable brackets in mind. Modifying brackets will be a thing of past thanks to additional clearance provided with the HP5283.
Those who are making use of the beloved Powerglide transmission, Hughes offers a a tapered filter spacer just to make life easy; however, this particular item is not included with the purchase of the pan, but can be purchased separately by ordering part number HP6226.
