More info

Direct bolt on to any 4EAT auto transmission.  Some modification might be needed if you have an after market exhaust or have a pre-2004 model car.  The formed aluminum is louvered for best heat dissapation while protecting all those sensitive solenoids located just above the flat belly pan of the 4EAT automatic transmission.   Great product and easy to install using existing hardware.  Just use caution not to create a case leak when installing.  You are loosening the transmission case bolts and using them to install this sikdplate over the belly of the transmission.
