Default Decided to have a lil bit of a mod day for myself :)

Went out and picked up a Hayden Ultra Cool trans cooler today, a model designed for motorhomes/ trucks pulling over 10,000 in tow lol.

I figure that should keep the trans cool lol. Went for a 20 min drive with it being 90* hitting hill * and not topping 40 mph in 3rd gear, i didn't even touch 200* on the trans temp

Here'* the pics.

that stock cooler does look a little small compared to the aftermarket one. These transmissions need all the help they can get when it comes to keeping cool. Nice work!

Mounting it....not too bad, just I had to pop off the top two screws to the auxillary fan and bend it back a lil to get the holder on the rod thingy.

Price with something else cheap and not related, I don't remember what it is either...that'* gonna bug me, but, the price out the door was like $56 and some change at my local parts store.

hard part it getting the rubber hose they supply you with onto the metal tubes that came on the car with oily/greasy hands....that had to be the hardest part of my battle.
