Twin trans coolers

Ok. So i have another small trans cooler laying around and was wondering if I could run my stock small trans cooler that is already on the truck then run from it into the other small cooler i have and get the same effect as just adding a bigger cooler. Will there be any problems with running two coolers?

Thanks, Austin

The pressure drop may be more than a single bigger cooler. You might want to do a flow volume test after installing if you do it. Cheers!

you can run two austin, Hank runs two stock 7.3 coolers on his with no problems. A flow test is easy, take the return line, put in in a gallon jug, when you start the truck, it should pump a quart or two in less than about 8 seconds if I remember the time correctly. where you been man??

Working but I've got a set of wildman tunes on the way hopefully and figured I should start looking into keeping the tranny cool. So this is what I've got.
Stock

New ( bigger than I thought it was gonna be)

So would I be good with just the new one? It's not as thick as the stock one but I feel like it would cool much more

It's all in the number of rows the cooler has. The newer one may be larger, but it won't cool as well as you want it to I don't think because of it only having 6rows. Ive got the stock cooler off mine you can have(pay for shipping) and you can connect your stock one in line with mine and it would do better. Flip one upside down and have it above the other one. Feed line from trans into one, come out of that one and go directly into thesecond one and then come out of that one and go back to the trans.

Well my stock cooler is only 2 rows so I figured the 6 row would be 3 times as much but I may still run from my stock into my new one. How many rows is your stock trans cooler?

Yeah I'm gonna run my stock one plus my new one. I'll be sure to test the flow though.
