Thats a lot of tranny coolers. I would think get the biggest one you can squeeze in the car. When it comes to a 5at you can't cool it too much.

well its decided

im not goin with any of those

im goin to be gettin the b&m one with the fan because i will no longer be using the radiator transmission cooler, and with stop and go traffic you will need one that has a fan on it.

Size shouldn't be a problem, all the installations I've seen of these were on Japaneese forums and since they all appear to be tied to the grill with some Ty-Raps or bailing wire....
:P :lol: :P

Seriously, where did/will you mount that? I should have plenty of room on a Titan.

i havent mounted one yet.
i have too many good deals come my way lately and havent gotten around to lookin into them more.
i am thinking more and more about gettin the b&m fan cooler though. mainly because of the florida heat and the stop and go traffic. also if i have a fan cooler, the mounting locations become much more abundant. also i wont have to use the stock cooler either. so i can replace my radiatior at the same time for bigger one.

Ok, but what is it that makes you think you need one? Of course I don't know what kind of mods you may have, but I'm in Baton Rouge and know a lot of people that drag and run SCCA with autos and I don't think it's too much of a problem for them. Perhapse just using a "top self" lube like Amsoil or Redline?

I believe the first two will create problem because of their sizes, but they all are good coolers
