    Tru-cool LPD (low pressure drop) transmission cooler. They have many sizes available for different applications. They have fins that are lay'd at an angle and are "flattened" for max cooling surface area.

    Not to butt in, but is it possible to go with too large of a cooler or is it a good idea to go with the largest that will fit for the application?

    You can never go wrong going big here, a old A/C condenser works great.
    Its best to run both an external and a internal cooler, most dont because of the added weight and the fact that most aftermarket radiators arent equiped with internals anymore but if you can use a rad with a cooler in it>by all means do it.

    tranny coolers

    i just cant believe it is a good idea to put the hot tranny fluid in the engines radiator. its hard enough to keep the cars cool from just the engines coolant running through them ( i have a 75 vega and large size radiator installs are next to impossible, so i want to use my radiator for the engine only and a separate tranny cooler for the trans. i like the idea of the B&M cooler that is 1 1/2 " thick and is 8"x11" and Fluidyne makes one for deisel trucks that aRE 2" thick and are 11"x12" that sound like my best bet to get max trans cooling. what do you guys think thanks chevy art
