Turbo Fox AOD Question??

Just wondering what you guys are running for trans lines and what trans cooler you are running in your street driven foxbodys with a Turbo.

What did you use for the fittings on the trans if you remember, I need to order some and not sure what size the threads or what angle to get. any help would be great.

Check the Click Click racing site; thats where I found all my AOD information. Its the Corral site of Ford auto transmissions.

I just used the biggest cooler I could get at Autozone, ran steel line, used a bender and flared fittings, works good so far

Hard or braided lines are always a smart way to go for trans lines. Being trans fluid is so flammable you don't want any hoses slipping off or barbed fitting or holes burned through a rubber line. Being the exhaust is usually in close proximity it is a good idea.

The trans uses 1/4" npt fittings. So 1/4" npt to -6 would be a good choice. I believe I used 45 degree fittings and 45 degree hose ends to get a good compromise of tight fitting to the trans and easy of install of the lines.

The trans cooler should be a "par and plate" cooler for best performance. I tried the largest B&M Supercooler but it did not fit. Because of that reason I used two of the next smaller B&M Supercoolers hooked in series. It is slightly more surface area than their largest cooler. Worked out great.

X 2 I used braided -6 line to and from the trans to the cooler. Just so close to a lot of the hot side I wasn't going to take a chance.
I'm currently using a cooler that came off a older F150 pickup truck. Not a lot a space to work with thats for sure!
