    Get the biggest one that you have space for. No such thing as too much. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    You must still use the internal cooler in the radiator along with the external cooler if you wish to keep your tranny alive. Without the internal cooler you will overheat the tranny in the summer and in the winter it will run too cold. If you don't believe me then ask any reputable tranny shop and they will verify this information.
