    I bought the biggest baddest tranny cooler I could get and will be installing it by this weekend. Any tips from you guys that have done this before? I never have. What line is the return line, etc? Do the kits come with everything I need? Any problems encountered out there? Do I need anything extra to do this? Thanks, Pat.

    You'll probably need something to mount it to the core support with. When I did my car I used "plumbers strapping" which is that metal that comes rolled up, is fairly flexible, and has a hole drilled every 1/4" or so.

    Using that on my car, I didn't even have to drill any holes for install.

    For the plumbing (wich is the return line )just do a "search" it this forum . a saw it a couple week a go!!
    the guy had the corect line for the return line .

    Just make sure it is fasten solid to the rad support and it will not hit the rad.
    and use the one u have in the rad+the new cooler u have purchase in serie.

    Mount it on the radiator, preferbly on the engine side to maintain engine temperature, which is optimum transmission temperature. Dont mount elsewhere or you may to cooling the fluid way to much.
