I'll bet even though your hands are blistered and a bit sore that you feel pretty good.It always makes me feel good to do my own mods.Any other benefits from a tranny cooler other than a cooler tranny?HeHeHeHEEEEEE

That voids your warranty, correct?

i dont know if it voids it or not i havnt had my warranty for like a year now...so i dont know but it is super worth it!!
it willsave your tranny, if you have tranny fluid this will keep it cool wether its a manual or auto...and for 30-50 bucks u cant go wrong.

Is the tranny cooler therostaticly controled? if not you may be doing more harm than good, as it will never warm up in any kind of winter. I know as I have a SHO with a factory trannycooler w/o the thermostat. If it gets below 38 degrees or so the tranny will never warm up and fail to lock the TC.

You can pick up a universal thermo for the cooler. It would be a good idea to anyways. Some cars (Mitsu) won't shift to overdrive as long as the tranny is still too cold. While you're at it get a generic B&M tranny temp gauge. The gauge is only about $50.
