I have one but I don't have a pic & I didn't install by myself. It took my body about 1/2 hour to do the job, not that hard...

The link in the prior post is perfect... if you need any more tech info or whatever mosey over to the SVX club at yahoo clubs. SVX owners know a lot about tranny coolers.

I have a combination oil and transmission cooler that I ordered from Summit. It's a complete kit and works well.

It voided my engine warranty, so buyer and installer beware.

HAHAHAHAHAHA you going to TRY to install it tonight!, ah maybe you will.

I ordered the a B&M tranny cooler and B&M filter. It works wonders, you can tell a big difference.

It's unbeliveable how hot the tranny gets, the cooler almost burns my hands! The subaru piping is a little wider than the pipeing that was included in my kit so I had to make adapters and stuff ( don't do this!, get the right size pipe to fit everywhere)

don't double crimp and don't overcprimp, you'll break the crimp.

You might want to change to synth while your at it, since it'll be a really hard fiascle to do afterwards.

Don't place the cooler inback of the ac nor place it right behind the bumper beam. You'll need at least 30% airflow on the cooler for it to really work.

make sure the piping is very snug and twist tied at every available place. don't bend it a lot eithet,

you prolly already know all this stuff, but this is for the archieves!

laterz.......

Well got it done in less than an hour with no problems at all and it really works. I let it sit in drive for a bout a min afelt the oilcooler and it was really hot and then i drove around for about 10 mins averaging 35 mph and then touched it and it was pretty much cold. Will have pics soon, and i was going to get the one in the link above but went with a little better built one for $10 more.
