Really nice

May 29, 2011
Very well built, looks good too. I mounted the transmission cooler on the bottom frame of my T Bucket in the air flow. A few fittings, some hose and it was done. You do have to find a place to mount it so it can radiate away the heat, but once you find a place, no problem.
Pros:
  • Improves Engine Efficiency
  • Lightweight
  • Easy To Install
  • Durable
Yes, I recommend this product.

These aluminum heat sink trans coolers do not specify a BTU rating or temperature drop. Many customers are using them in place of the internal radiator cooler with satisfactory results. We recommend the largest cooler for the space available in your vehicle and also for self assurance you could plumb in a temperature gauge if desired. The only cooler specifying a BTU rating is the B&M cooler number 20070265

Your question cannot be answered directly due to other variables that have not been mentioned. Example: larger sized coolers will provide greater surface area for greater heat dissipation. This style of cooler is very prevalent in the performance aftermarket and does a very, very effective job in reducing transmission temperatures. It is not uncommon for these to reduce temperatures as much as 50 degrees, but again, depending upon your application, outside ambient temperatures, and the application in which you use your vehicle will have an affect on the overall temperature of the fluid. A good temperature range for your transmission fluid is 175-200 degrees. Some customers use these in conjunction with an internal radiator transmission cooler, but others have had great success using them in a stand alone situation.

Part number 91023112 The aluminum heatsink trans cooler is an option used daily for rods that do not have a radiator with the trans cooler or a radiator that could not accept the cooler. Normally they handle the cooling needs sufficiently as long as sized for the intended application and have sufficient air flow to dissipate the heat. The cooler in the radiator in some cases is not adequate for sufficient cooling and in those cases a supplementary cooler is needed. The internal cooler in the radiator also serves need in warming up the fluid to operating temperature in different climates. The transmission fluid is designed to work in certain temperature ranges and if the fluid is too cold it can have adverse effects as well. As a fail safe solution a temp gauge can be installed in the line to keep the driver informed of the fluid temperature.
