Default Update to Mag-Hytec install

Ok Drove 20 miles this morning to check for leaks and level. No leaks and the line is right at the top marker now.

Still only put 3 quarts in however.

Be sure to check out the T/A Performance cover too, not only looks awesome and holds a little more fluid it actually does something too, adds strength also not just looks. http://www.taperformance.com/proddet...=TA%5F1818

The finned housing helps with heat dissapation increasing the time it takes the fluid to heat up and decreases the cool down time.

Very minimal. The position of the diff does not allow for optimum air flow over the heat sink so, once you are up to temp, that's that. It doesn't cool it down while driving down the road like they claim. Stick a diff temp sensor in there and see. We debunked this a while back on some diesel forums when I had my F250 6.0L.

Got a link? I wouldn't mind reading and to see how you did the two tests. I don't plan on reinstalling my factory cover and going thru the trouble.

I looked but I can't find it, it's been over 5 years since I remember seeing it. Guess it'll just be my word. I wouldn't change it out if you already have it installed. It's just not something I would spend money on. To each their own!

Gotcha. I installed mine b/c I was swapping the 3.55s for 4.10s and adding a Truetrac and figured the extra fluid capacity couldn't hurt.

will that cover work on my 2011 1500ram? and what is the rearend in the 1500's?
