    well i recently went to a 465 and have no use for tranny oil coller in my radiator. im curious if yall thought it would work well as a power steering fluid cooler...

    would the big issue simply be how warm coolant stays relative to PS fluid?

    if you lived in real cold area mabye. but i would say no way to that. to much heat to the p/s system. i got a nice little one off a turd aerostar under the frt bumper. nice little tabs to mount also.

    I've gotten two coolers from work, they were from dodge caravans like late 90's. im going to one for a power steering cooler and im giving one to my friend. They got a nice little mount and I already found a place to mount it to my driver's side fender. I will have to take a pic once its mounted
