Default 4L65e tranny oil pan, want one with a drain plug

This is my first build using an auto tranny, 4L65e. Bought an LS3 with tranny from GM Cruise and Connect.
The tranny pan doesn't have a drain plug. I've looked at them on Summit and Jegs. Lots of choices and prices from $40-$300.
You guys have any helpful info?

if worse come to worse, you can install your own drain plug. I've done it numerous times. Pick up a low profile, compact drain plug from the parts store. Help section or dorman section. Find a nut to fit. a castle nut would work best. find a spot inside the pan that will accommodate the nut. drill hole. if you dont have a castle nut, grind a couple slots in one side of the nut. tack weld the slotted side into the pan. the slots allow all the fluid to drain. a drain plug with a rubber oring or washer made on it works best. You're welcome.

Thanks, good idea about the slots to get more fluid to drain out.
I've got a few O2 bungs I could use.
