CORRECT...I was wondering if this would CLICK with someone...TOUCHE'

Tranny Operating temp., Heat transfer coefficient of the cooler, ambient Temp (under hood), etc..etc..ie...Thermal Transfer Calculations....This is the key to where the cooler would be most effective...(as and engineer) I find things are not as obvious as they seem...Mathmatically speaking....

Anyone done Diagnosics of Transmission operations.....????

Just remember that the TCC solonoid is programmed to operate at a specific temp or above.....so overcooling that trans may have a negative effect.

Exactly...Hoping some Tranny Tech would join in by now..In the past we just ran down to the local Tranny shop and had the old man in the BACK of the shop BEEF up the tranny up using a Black & Decker reversible drill!!!

Nowadays...with all this Hi-Tech ****...we have to understand the physics in action here...

If you want tranny tech I can hook you up with the very best around. I have two guys I can recommend to talk to who are 4t60-e specialists. They build my transaxles for me. One is the builder of the transaxle strapped to the 800-900hp ecotech sunfire. Both build me custom torque converters as well as limited slips. You name it they do it. If you contact me privately I will connect you up with them.

Oh for the record I have tried on numerous occasions (wh0res and alc0h0l included) to have them part with the internal parts they make as a kit but that is not happening at this point. One company tried to copy some parts but made the silly mistake of going to the original miller of the product and was told to get out and not return. LOL So they will tell you alot but in the end there specialty parts tend to come in a whole unit. If you want a good price on a 4t60-e with a limited slip I can give you a better deal if you are from this forum or the Bonneville Attitude forum.

Any questions always feel free to phone me personally at 559-709-4127

I have some very high-end solutions coming and they knock the regular cooling systems on there um tush. No they are not more expensive either. Once again Monday and Tuesday ill let it all out with prices. I have been researching cooling options (I live in the Fresno California heat) and come up with the best options available and once again racing based.

Unless you're considering bracket racing in a very hot environment, you're not going to see much difference between tranny coolers. You also don't want to over-cool it.

I'd suggest doing what most of us do. Buy budget coolers and save your cash for other mods. You can only get so much cooling from a tranny cooler without going larger in size. The difference between a budget and performance tranny cooler will make no difference except in the pocketbook.

If Ty can get you a good price including shipping, go for it. I tried some other online sources, and found I could buy cheaper locally and not pay shipping. Ty, are any of yours about the same size as the stock cooler, and under $30 shipped?

(nuthin like a little challenge, eh?)
