The 350s pan holds 3.5 qts of trans fluid, always check answers to questions asked on the net , mine included. You can verify this statement with a quick call the B&M.
Aluminum is just as easy to keep clean for me anyway as the chrome will start to flake after time anyway IMHO and as far as how much fluid that is actually in the pan will depend on the style / depth of the pan, JMO
A stock pan on a t-350 is 4 quarts IIRC and either aftermarket pan you go with Bob can be had with a drain plug in them also. and unix is correct about checking answers that you get on the net even mine. There are alot of people in the internet world that do nothing but sit and google stuff and give answers to thing's about stuff they really know nothing about, I'm not one of those guy's i speak totally from experience that has happened to me or someone i know first hand, if i don't know i will not post as some will do.
and i will admit sometimes it takes a few time to catch on to it but you will. It's a learning process figuring out who is full of it or not sometimes.
As far as which pan you do go with if you like chrome get chrome if you like aluminum go that route just whatever you do get the best product ot there for that 36 it deserves it and so do you.
