Yup. The top is the hot stuff. Bypass that one.....through the cooler, then back to the top.

Hi

I recently installed the B&M 19k gvw tranny cooler...and what a difference in engine temps.

I am really impressed with what a 180 tstat, and cooler has done for my LSS.

Thanks for the excellent advice.

How would I install one of those tranny co0lers, and what would be the best one to get for my car?

Hi

I used the "mount " straps that came with the B&M "268" cooler, and mounted it in front of the a/c condensor. You will need to drill 4 holes ..2 through the top rad header, and the other 2 at the bottom. I used a dremel to cut 2 slots out of the air dam in order that the straps could fit flush against the steel surface.

You connect the bottom line from the aft/mkt cooler to the top trans line ( which currently goes into the rad. , passenger side). The top line from the aft/mkt cooler, now connects to the spot where the top trans line originally connected to the radiator.

Top off your tranny, being careful to not over fill.

Check frequently the first few days for leaks. Some people have suggested using fuel injection clamps rather than the gear type which comes with the kit.
