Default New Trans Cooler, Fogs lights are installed-Now Wth Pics!!!

Got my B&M cooler on today and changed the trans fluid. That Old trans fluid was so clean yet, but oh well I changed anyways. this was my 3rd trans fluid change in the 2 months I owned the car. Now that trans shift so much better. I noticed from my first drive after I finished is shifts about 30% better than before, plus for some reason the engine temp dropped 5 degrees or so. Worked out well. I also go my new Navigator fog lights on, there so bright, I love em. Everything went pretty darn good today. Took me 4 hours to install the cooler, change the trans fluid, and change the engine oil. Not too bad.

The tranny cooler is responsible for the drop in engine temps. They're interrelated. Way to go! You just bought some insurance

Did you mount the Navigators using part of the old bracket?

I'd love to see them mounted on a 92-95 SE body style.

I took off the old fog lights, bracket and all I guess, and mounted the new ones where the old bracket was bolted. They look pretty good, bright as hell.

soup, You want the black supercooler rated at 19000GVW. You will also need to buy extra hose, if you plan to run the hose from the radiator, into the cooler, then into the trans as I did (simplest way)

Heres the link for the cooler:
http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerc...28&prmenbr=361

Heres for the hose:
http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerc...30&prmenbr=361
you want the Transmission Hose 11/32'' x 4' , you also should get an additional fitting, I'm not sure what size, cause the cooler kit only has one of each fitting, and I ended up having to cut the orig. trans line at the fitting and connect the hose to it.


I would also advise changing your trans fluid and filter too when you too the cooler, just an idea
