    Yes definitly get a cooler. If you're racing and going rounds you'll want to keep temps consistant to be able to keep your ET's consistant.JMO

    Without a cooler I'd say your cutting the life of a race tranny by a 1/3. Especially if your running a stall converter.

    Cooler

    The cooler you can keep the tranny, the longer it'll live and will be more consistent. A gauge is a wise investment, especially with a brake and high stall converter.

    I have always heard a 20° temp drop doubles the life of the trans.

    Always. Synthetic fluid will also drop it 10-15˚.

    Not usually unless you are using a cheap thin fluid before changing to synthetic. It should also perform more consistently.
