I think EVERY Bonneville would benefit from this, even those with a stock cooler already. Your trans is the weak spot of the drivetrain to begin with. Forty bucks for a little more lifetime is worth it.

It'* guys like you, I like seeing at Work (GM Dealership) to get their Transaxles rebuilt (AT Customer Cost) due to neglect like this!

Trust someone with a trans temp gauge. My cooler DOES make a difference, and heat is the #1 enemy of a trans.
