    my mounts stayed the same, you deffinately want to keep the cooler in the radiator, and then add an external, dont do away witht the rad cooler. water to water cools better than air to water. and my engine usually runs cooler than my trans, so thats not an issue.
    the newer stacked plate design is by far superior.
    imo

    I'm running the following: Long Tru-Cool Max transmission cooler P/N LPD4739. This cooler is rated at 40,000 GVW and measures 8.5"x22.75"x1.25". It's a stacked plate design and cools great. :) I found it on ebay for a little over $100. It comes with the thermal bypass to allow the fluid to get to operating temp before it runs through the cooler.

    I just bought a 4 core radiator not long ago to replace the stock one and the stock brackets don't work.. The 4 core is alot thicker then stock so the brackets just wont reach... So for the time being I wired tied the fan shroud to some excisting holes close to where the the original radiator support brackets went to hold it in place...

    As for new mounts you can get them at the dealer.. I called them and they said for the new brackets and a new complete fan shroud it was $60.00...
