    Hey all,

    Just a quick poll to check on tranny cooler preference:



    Which one would you buy? Are there really any others that are any good?

    Thanks again!
    -Dan

    I voted B&M PN 70266, like 83zz502Jimmy did. That's what I run in front of my "built" 700r4 and I do not have tranny cooling issues. Although there are some instances, like on a trail in the middle of one of Alabama's 100/100 summers, where I think having an external electric fan would be beneficial.

    BTW, I run my fluid through the radiator's heat exchanger and then on to the cooler. That way I don't have any issues with "overcooling" my ATF in the winter either.

    I actually voted other.. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif The one he listed was 70264

    Then 70266 is the bigger of the two.

    B&M number 70266
    I have this one. It has the fittings instead of barbs. I used 5/16" steel brake line to hard plumb it in. I have no rubber hoses that will blow out.
    BTW, this is the exact same cooler as the factory oil cooler on my K5...

    Normally I like TCI products over B&M. But I do like this B&M tranny cooler . I like the idea of a fan on it. I think I'd go with part #130-70297. [​IMG]

    The B&M 70266 is the one I'm using for my full hydro cooler. And another will be installed when I install the th400 this winter. I just went to Menards, to the plumbing section and bought a 1/2 inch male to 3/8 barb fittings. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I like the tru-cool coolers. They are stacked plate, low pressure drop and have a bypass for when the tranny fluid is too low. I have PN 4590 on my F350, but that is a huge cooler, I will get one of their smaller models for my SUB.
