    I just got a B&M tranny cooler. Where did you guys mount yours? Iin front of the radiator, or behind the radiator in front of the fan? Also, the mounting hardware included 4 metal strips with holes in them. What are these used for?

    Mine's mounted behind the grille, in front of the radiator and a/c condenser. That way it gets the coolest air possible. The metal straps can be cut, bent and formed to make brackets to hold the cooler in place. Also make sure that you protect the hoses where they go back through the core support so they don't get holes rubbed in them. A piece of heater hose, slit length-wise and tie-wrapped to the cooler hose will do the job.
