trans cooler install

getting ready to install my true cool max cooler just have a few questions do these trucks have 2 coolers stock ive herd there's one in the rad and there's one up in front of the rad (which i know is there cause i can see it) now do u remove them from the circuit or run them booth inline with the new cooler some say u might have flow problems? also what temp would be advised to run the thermal bypass i live in eastern pa so the winters are usually mild might see 0 every now and then...thoughts ?

I recently added a TruCool Max to my 1995 PSD. I removed the existing cooler that was mounted in front of the A/C condenser and extended those lines to the new cooler. I mounted the new cooler behind the stock front bumper. Pretty easy to do and it's working well. I don't have the bypass valve on mine, so I can't offer any insight there.

Here's the thread I posted: Ordered a TRU-COOL 4739-1 TRANSMISSION COOLER

1995 F250 Ext. Cab 7.3L PSD

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
