I have one on mine (behind the front bumper). I did not reuse the factory lines and made all new lines (although I need to get the 3/8" SD lines on it). Not much help here! Cheers!

What's so special about the sd lines? I hear everybody using them and are they sd 6.0 or 7.3?

Factory OBS lines are 5/16" in diameter. The SD lines are 3/8" diameter (so better flow and better cooling). Cheers!

Don't listen to what DS says...

This will get you the best cooling:
Trans -rad- cooler -trans that's how to route the 3/8" lines.

Not knowing a lot about physics and airflow but what I do know is that it would male more sense to put it just above the bumper so its getting the most amount of ram air possible? And does the SD lines replace the steel lines? Also where do I get the bypass from? And what does it do? Also I would think that extra fluid is needed anybody have an idea of how much is needed

The factory obs bumper has 3 large holes in it as is, so it still does get a lot of the ram air needed that your looking for

I've tried it many ways...this combination works as good as it gets unless you use a 31 row but then it transfers heat to other components.

Yes the SD lines replace the 5/16" lines.

Also remove the small fittings in the Radiator and replace with 3/8"

I can get you the parts or go to your local Ford dealer.

Question Cary... I've gathered from other posts u have made that you like to use sweep push lock fittings into the cooler instead of street L's for better flow. How do u hide the fittings, got a picture of it installed with said fittings?
