Why does a super duty's trans have 5 times the fluid volume of that of a half tons? More fluid = greater heat dissipation for a heavier load application.
While I'm glad that has worked for you - it's still terrible advice. Not everyone is about saving a dollar at the expense of mechanical integrity. I, for instance, was happy to spend a few hundred more for a higher volume tig welded aluminum reservoir, a larger idler pully, a longer serp belt, a heavier, higher volume pump, and some pre made brackets.
Not sure where the $2,000 comes in...I paid $900 and some change and they ported my box for me.

Good job on educating the engineer on heat transfer. It's far from bad advice, if you'd like to run through some rough heat generation, heat transfer, fin analysis on the cooler, etc, calculations...I can do that too.
Did you not notice the large cooler in my system? It's the steering cooler off a full hydro setup ran on PSC's Ultra4 racer.
What about the large filter assembly that adds another quart to the system?
Heat dissipation is not a problem here, there is plenty of volume added, about double the OEM power steering fluid capacity actually....But apparently we're still learning about Super Duty versus 1/2 ton volumes and heat dissipation?
Or are we just going to keep drinking the PSC kool-aid and not recognize that there are other methods to achieve better results between stock and a kit that someone picked out for you?
So far the hit in "mechanical integrity", in regards to the system I have, has absolutely no base. It's based on solely opinion and no actual results what-so-ever.
