Not entirely sure if this belongs in this section, but where are you guys mounting your trans coolers at?

Mine is currently under the drivers seat but I knicked it pulling it onto a trailer so I'm thinking I need to move it plus I can't really imagine it getting good air flow right there or getting cool air being blasted by the downpipe and trans heat..
Space is kind of limited, big A2A up front so I can't really mount it up there..help?

I have one where the drivers muffler used to be and a second one in the drivers inner fender well. Putting it between inter cooler and radiator worked for trans temps but badly affected engine temps on my car.

I drive my car in true street cruises which are regularly 90+ degrees and can be as long as 90-100 minutes of driving. That is the only time it used to heat up. Cruising around town and going to cruise nights never caused an issue.

It also depends on your converter. The PG in my car is worse then the C4 was because the converter slips more.

We mounted Cammed 2V GT's to the front of the radiator. So it's sandwiched between the radiator and the intercooler.

Sigh my sandwich goes like this

Pusher fan -> Trans Cooler -> Intercooler -> Condensor -> Radiator -> Puller fan

oh yeah had to cut out some of the bumper support entire bumper/clip is off. Bob Kurgan actually did this for me during the build of my car. There are some pics. I will post when I get home.


The question is will the car run cool! This has yet to be seen I am very hopeful though

Would love to see pics. The fan is a great idea. Especially with everything stacked like that.

Thanks

Nice, Bob. I'll wait till you come back out so you can mount mine too.

What cooler/fan is that?

That looks like the larger B&M w/ fan. 70297

I have the smaller one in my drivers inner fender well and it made a big difference on temps.

The smaller version I have uses a Spahl fan on it.

The two together work well.

I dont think it will cuz I also have the roush stage3 bumper on my car so it should get a lil bit more air in their, hopefuly lol

I got a cricle D triple disk 3800 stall in my car so It shouldnt bring the temp up to much I dont think its a 4R70w also

We decided that my car had enough stuff jammed into the front so we put mine in the back. It is a 90% street and 10% race so the th400 transmission gets used. I also flashlight drag the car at the local airport where is gets hot lapped with out an issue.

Wonder how much it hurts to have it mounted in front of the IC...
