Default kinda a/t related question..

So Im looking at 2 row radiators and I cant seem to find any for the a/t with the trans cooling lines...

If I cant find one that's fitted with a/t cooling would it be at all adequate to get the 2 row and a separate trans cooler? And if so where would be the optimal place to mount it? (99 impreza, 2.2l, a/t)

On the other hand would I be better off just locating a stock style radiator with the a/t lines? long story short my radiator has a small yet annoying crack and needs to be replaced. I tried jb-weld... didn't hold very long lol

I have not seen any dual core with the built in trans cooler. Optimal place for stand alone cooler is in front of the ac condenser, but you can mount one between the condenser and radiator. If you do that be sure to get a slim profile cooler. Bar and plate coolers appear to be the more efficient of the different types.

^ ^ much appreciated to know thx, I thought about placing in front of the a/c condensor but I dont wanna interfere with the a/c or the radiator cooling, but if thats optimal then thats optimal. Also considering just getting an oe replacement for now (just to keep it simple) and when I have everything else figured out then Ill get the 2 core

Just get another own replacement. Subues do not have overheating issues. A dualcore is more for bling. No need for additional a/t cooling unless you are dragging or doing a lot of auto x. Then just get a second cooler but keep the oem one because it helps with warming up the tranny.

Cool good to know. I do plan on doing some weekend amateur rally in the future, just not immediate future. I just didnt like the stock radiators plastic tank, thats what cracked on my current one, I figured upgrade if I have to replace but if there wont be any benefit then Ill save the money

Just to chime in. I run a Koyo MT radiator with B&M ATF cooler in front of the AC condensor. Works fine. I moniter it with a oil temp gauge. Lasted over 25k miles now.
Good luck.

Thx do you run the a/c at all? Any difference noticed with that? I have to have a properly running a/c in my cars (fiance's health condition) which is why I was hesitant to block the condenser but if it works, great!
