The dipstick still reads the same locations with deep or OEM pan

Had same problem with my deep 200 4r pan. Took me a while to figure it out when I first put on the deep pan. I kept over filling it. Check it after it sat a day and get it close. Then drive it a little and then park it for the day and then check it. I was amazed how much tranny fluid it help up in that thing and how slow it drains down. Now I know why those 200 4r burned up so many times. That shallow pan had so little left in it when you ran it hard. That top feeder filter didn't help any. To the full mark and your good to go

Did this too.

Yep, I agree with the above. I put a deep B&M pan on my 700r4 in my 4x4 91 chevy years ago. The extended pickup tube puts the filter down to the proper place in the pan. Think of it like this, you are putting an extra x-amount of quarts below the factory pan level. Does nothing to change the running level of the trans, just adds more below the mark.

update

well I put 10 qrts in and drove only about 1mile (started to rain), sat overnight no leaks, so I added 1 more qrt, took it for about 2 mile run, over night leaked about 1/2 qrt at the most. should I drain about approx 1 qrt or drive a little farther and see what happens? Thanks Dana

You need to read the dip stick and keep it at the full mark or just above it. On my 200 4r I just put it on the full mark and added one half quart. I didn't have to but its not a lot over full. My filter sits on the bottom of the pan and is a top feeder. I had lowered the filter by 3/4 of an inch by removing the stand offs. I think yours is a bottom feeder so its not as big a problem as my tranny. When I over filled mine, it leaked out of the filler tube after it set overnight. That is when I lowered it to just the full mark and drove it off and on and kept checking it and then put it to just 1/2 quart over full.

Your filter opening is on the bottom of the filter for the 700. My filter opening is on the top of the filter for the 200. I'm sure your filter setts on some sort of stand offs on the bottom of the pan so as not to block the fluid flow. It stands up somewhat so as not to suck up all the junk that builds up on the bottom of the pan. Your extension just moves is down a little farther in a deeper pan. That is why you only need to keep it at the full mark really.
