The downside to an aluminum pan is they are easy to crack especially if the car is lowered or if the pan bolts are over tightened,skid plate?

Thanks Jeff. I've heard these pans actually offer some protection against the trans. case cracking ..from torque?

the Hughes Performance pan has a thick flange area, very sturdy pan.

Be careful of thin flange aluminum pans, they bend easy at bolt holes

B&M is not known for making junk. Is it the pan with the fins for cooling? I almost bought one just so I had a drain plug on the pan! I am sure there is always a better product. I have only used B&M stuff because thats all I can find locally.

For extra insurance against any pan gasket leaks,run a flat file over the gasket surface of the pan before installing it..You would be surprised,new or used,how many of those aluminum pan surfaces are not as flat as they look.
