    I'm converting my AC pump into an air pump. But that is not the question. I'm thinking of using that huge cooler of the AC system (as big as the engine cooler) as a cooler for my transmission. What you guys think of that?

    I was going to do that (until I said F*** it to autos) and I was told that there is a possibility of OVERCOOLING the tranny...this would result in any water in the fluid NOT evaporating andf causing some problem...I also threw around the idea of using the AC condensor and using an oil thermostat (from Jegs or summit) to frevent the overcooling...

    Well at least my idee is not new. But about this overcooling. I have a 700R4 and 35's on 4.11. I think I can use all the cooling I can find, or am I wrong?
