    I was looking at the Moroso Heat-Sink Trans Cooler for my
    700-R4. I like the fact that it has a filter built into it. Is any one running this model if so how has it been. If you want to look at it go to this web site. jegs TransCooler
    If you like one better please tell me about it and your experience with the product.

    Thanks alot

    I run a 22000 GVW Tru-Cool stacked plate cooler made by Long Inc. It's a big sucker, but it doesn't have a filter built in.

    Whatever you decide to do, I highly recommend you choose a stcked plate design instead of the old tube/fin tranny cooler.

    Also, the B&M Super Coolers are repackaged Long's units. Very heavy duty. Mine's a 24,000 GVWR rating. That should keep things cool. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Yup! Take a look at the stamp on the mounting flanges of one. It says "Made In Canada" and has the LONG logo stamped into it. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Canucks make good coolers, eh? /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I always wondered who stole the design from whom, because the B&M and the Tru-Cool always looked identical to me. And now I know./forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    B&M's (now I guess I could say Long's from reading the above posts) 24,000 GVW stacked plate cooler mounted in front of the radiator. If you get that Moroso one where would you mount it and what would you do for airflow?

    I run a 28.8k stacked plate Tru-cool. It's about 12" by 12".
