    Question fel-pro transmission pan gasket or factory

    So I know that fel-pro is a well known name in gaskets. The typical cheap rubber gaskets you get with transmission filters are garbage, so my question is this.

    Has anyone used the fel-pro trans pan gaskets with their fel-coprene? Or should I spend the extra and get the dealer oem rubber coated metal pan gasket.

    felpro gasket. as always there is marketing spin with this but does anyone have experience with it.

    Fel-pro is good stuff. No reason not to use it!

    I used Fel Pro on every tranny I did when I worked at my last shop. I never had a problem with it. Just make sure it is correct, and install it properly and it should work great.
