get this one then

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/HAYDE...spagenameZWDVW

"TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER. MADE BY HAYDEN FOR CLASS A MOTOR HOMES, LARGE TRAVEL TRAILERS, 5TH WHEEL TRAILERS, HEAVY DUTY TOWING. THIS COOLER HAS A STACKED PLATE CONSTRUCTION AND BRAZED ALUMINUM TECHNOLOGY FOR MAXIMUM STRENGTH COOLING EFFICIENCY AND OIL FLOW RATE. GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT TO 30,000 LBS."

thats more then enough, more like overkill. Run it in parrell with your stock cooler.

a 404 cooled my auto v6 tranny with a stage 2 street/strip VB upgrade not one slip ever. i would assume that would be enough for you too.

Nismo, there hasn't been a stock cooler since 1995 on a Bonneville.

OFF TOPIC: Will, how does the Bonneville keep the tranny fluid'* temp low?

edit:
themostatically controlled? i assume you mean the cooler would only pass fluid through when it was 'open', which would be based on temp of the fluid?

i sure wouldn't do that.

the 403 looks fine to me. installation shouldn't be to hard at all...uses long zip ties it'* a sinch to attach.

The cooling fins are on small diameter tubes only on it. It still flows when it'* cold, just not through any passages with cooling fins because the fluid get thinner with heat.

Nismo, the only cooler is a small 4" tube inside the radiator core. Only the SSEi and SSE from 92-95 got an aftermarket remote mounted cooler. This little 'cooler' inside the radiator has very small passages. It'* best to bypass it after a trans failure like Haro had. Mine was completely restricted after my first trans blew to pieces. GM passages are larger than ford or chrysler, but still a potential problem for flow. You should do this as a safety to protect the replacement trans. This is why Haro is wondering about this now (as the ambient temps begin rising is his part of the world).

Thermostatically controlled? YES, not NO. Nismo, this is a totally different application than you're used to. You WANT one. You need to let the fluid reach operating temperature. Too cool is bad.

Mine is a 28000 GVWR cooler:

Viscosity (thermo) controlled.

I'll post all the trans details soon, including that cooler. Trans shop charged me $84 for it.

I just measured it as 12x12x1.5, and it might be this one:

It is a Tru-Cool, and I just found out NASCAR runs these off the shelf.

This has a better description of how it works. It looks like fluid viscosity determines which path to take, not temp:

And just to cler things up a hair... I run a Hayden RV+Towing cooler.... I run in conjunction with the internal cooler as I have not blown a trans... But I am also In florida and its a very warm climate.. I can use all the cooling I can get...

Haro if you have a few $$ the thermostatic one is the one I'd get... would be great for your climate
