Leaking trans pan

I had my trans rebuilt by performabuilt awhile back and the trans pan started to leak recently. I had a spare lying around so I installed it instead of trying to play iron smith. Lasted about a week and that one started to leak. Did I mention we just had our driveway repaved and is one of the wife's pet peeves?
And no, I didn't follow tightening sequence or torque specs. So I looked around and found this on ebay. Looks like a real nice piece and comes polished, price was right too. I also added a magnet to the drain plug. Will be installing this today.

I am confused, if you admit you didn't follow proper installation process, what is a new pan going to change?

Sorry to mention this is a cast aluminium pan. Although I did follow the torque specs this time around.

be verrrrrry aware that the drain plug bolt head will now be the lowest part of your pan, and if it scrapes pavement/object in road it is most susceptible to being torn off/damaged. especially so if this pan is deeper than stock depth. just be aware of it thats all

I should have changed it to a plug instead of a bolt like I did on my other pan.
It will have to wait until the future now.
