You have an SSE.....it should already have one....but add another anyway. Not for your tranny, though, it should be fine for a long time. Do it for intake and engine benefit. Buy just about any aftermarket tranny cooler you want. Should be about 40 bucks. Do the 180 stat if you haven't. Later years of the Series II switched to it from the factory for the same reason.

My oops. Drunk. Tired. Stupid.

I meant add a tranny cooler for the benefit of the intake heat problems. Leaching that heat away from the intake, but cooling the tranny, is of enormous benefit. Don't go overboard like VZ either! That guy knows how to shop, and I'm damned glad I'm not married to him! He bought a helluva cooler, but may end up having to cover part of it in the winter. Summertime, that guy is in better shape than ANYONE.

Spend about $40 for a cooler slightly smaller than your stock cooler. That makes it easy to mount.....right in front of the stock unit. If you like, I can post a pic tomorrow of my mounting. You reading that other thread about fans, too? Good info there that parallels what we're talking about here.

You're already ahead of the game with the stat. That tranny cooler is your last piece of insurance. I learned both tricks here, and I'm glad Pontiac finally learned it too!
