I've always run stock. Bigger is not always better.

Iím kind of interested if he provides any data about fill level. Way back when we all used to bitch about GM being cheap skates and not filling the diff all the way up to the fill hole. Which was standard practice not the what 1.5 qts they put in? Makes me a little suspicious that we didnít know as much as we thought we did.

Meh. The oil after run in both videos donít look much different to me. Iíll agree the curved housing is probably better for oil flow but thereís no pump in there so who cares. Letír splash.

i want to see the temp differential that backs what hes stating. Im kinda with Dale at this point, im not seeing a HUGE difference between the ford 9.75 stock cover and the dodge 11.5 with maghytech on it. if it truely is working the fluid that much more, temps will show it.

It does seem the fluid drop amount is higher with the bigger cover but its hard to compare apples to apples since he didnt do a stock see through cover on the 11.5, just the ford 9.75.

Way back when, maghytech use to claim a drop in temp from stock (gave a certain amount but i dont remember) and there is a port in my cover to measure diff temps. im pretty sure i still have the original info from them from 2002. see if i can dig it up.

Lack of lube to the pinion gear and bearings will put a lot of heat into the diff.

I think he should test the AAM aluminum cover they put on some of the Dodges. I know quite a few people were buying these up (myself included) when they had cheap overstock on eBay

The ones with the fins? Itíll work good. Gale is just proving a point that adding fluid and the cover not following the pinion gear is creating more heat, basically anyone who bought one wasted money

I would rather believe research from almost every member on this forum before I'd believe anything put out by Banks. They've only ever done anything for their own gain. I agree, this has all the earmarks of another marketing campaign for a "better" idea from them.
Damn, Im being really cynical today.

I want to know what the increased fluid level does for the wheel bearings.

I'm sure that the pinion bearings are getting plenty of oil splashed to them, or there would be thousands of posts complaining. It's not a new product. Also wouldn't the oil getting thrown all over the cover increase the cooling capability of the cover?

I believe your cynicism is justified. Lol. I kinda feel the same way you do about him.

I'm with Mike L.

I'll stick with stock. Banks is hard to listen to, but in my eyes, that video shows the flat back wall of the aftermarket covers, are a bad idea. That oil looks like it's full of air.

Itís a splash lube system so really who cares about the air in the oil. As long as itís getting thrown up to the pinion then good enough.

If you watch the f-150 video, at 30mph it too was starting to get bubbles if you watch the bottom. The Ford never went to the 50mph that the dodge did either which really showed the bubbles.

Iíd be willing to bet all this testing was actually done over a day or two and the rest of the time was spent editing and reshooting the videos so they worked for them. IMO the evidence is inconclusive.
