Sorry, i guess im asking if the directions to put on a tranny cooler on a 95 bonneville be the same directions id follow to put it on my grand prix 3.4. Just curious cause no one answered me over on clubgp and my gf is a member on this site so i thought id ask if not necessarily the same tranny cooler will work but if i can put it on following the directions you guys give for the bonnys.

I must ask again about the 180 Thermostat changeover.
Does this mess with the way the car operates?
I've been told by the NAPA Counterman that the operation of the vehicle is largely dependant upon the temp being 195+ or thereabouts.
Please reassure me that using the 180 is the correct thing to do.
The Counterman didn't see any problem with the trans cooler, other than maybe running the zip-tie through the other cooler and adding stress to it.
Thanks.

If that zip tie comes off, you're gonna have some serious problems. Don't ever do that. Drilling bypass holes in the fringe ring is a better idea, but not necessary for an everyday driver. You will have NO problems whatsoever with the 180, in any weather. Not a prob at all. Can I have a show of hands for the number of people running the 180 here?

(124 hands go in the air, but Allmachtige has both raised......bozo).

Seriously. I could go into major detail as to WHY it won't hurt your car, but I don't have the time right now! Somebody else wanna take this? (and Club GP is 12,000 members strong. Probably half of them are running the 180, and have been since 1997)

Tef, as far as the trans cooler goes, the procedure will be the same. You just have less room to work with than we do. The pressure line is the one that enters the top of the radiator, and the return is the lower one. You'll be splicing into the pressure line. From the line into your cooler, out of your cooler back into the line, then the fluid enters the radiator, comes out the return line at the bottom, and back to the trans.
