Exclamation Placement of tranny cooler

Well I am a retard and blew up my a/c condesor well trying to mount the tranny cooler in the grill, so now I am thinking of putting it under the truck, but what side faces the ground, the fan or the tubes? and also i am thinking of keeping the stock cooler but just piping the return on the stock into the intake of the new then back to the tranny? hows that sound?

I mounted mine on the back of the front bumper over the hole where the tag goes and plumbed it in series with the one mounted under the inner cooler. The fittings should be on top. There are some pics of mine in my sig link.

You should want your fan pointed to the greater air source which would down towards the ground. No prob installing inline, just do a flow test when your done, you should see 1 quart every 15 sec at the return line to the trans.
Can I ask you a question? Why are you bothering installing this fan powered unit and not just install the cooler out of a 6.0? My temps dropped 40 degrees and it bolted right in the same place as the stock cooler. Took less than a hour to do. You can also use the one out of the V10, it isn't as big as the 6.0 but larger than stock. I don't have the cooler in the rad and the warmest I have seen is 170 in 95 degree ambient and towing heavy up some slow steep switch backs.

I found 6.0 cooler for $200. One of the trans shops quotes $320 and Ford want $500+. I understand from a friend who rebuilds transmissions for one of the local Ford dealers that every rebuilt/new trans comes with a new cooler. Techs don't put them in, instead they sell them on ebay etc. I had one of the force air (fan) coolers (derail) and sent it back to the company. I like the 31 passes that the 6.0 cooler has. The 6.0 litre cooler goes in the same place as the stock 7.3 cooler (that only has 9 passes). By the way the Derail only had 16 passes and half of them were behind the first 8. IMHO the stock 6.0 is the only way to go.

Do you think the 6.0 cooler will fit in place of the stock cooler on my 2000 Excursion psd?

Yes it will fit your EX.
I paid $60 for mine, but it was before the mod was so popular. I had a source where I got them for cheap and I sold about a dozen for $120, now they are selling for quite a bit more. Ebay is your friend here. I believe my local Ford place wants under $400, so someplace charging $500 is way up there. Try Bob at Powerstrokeshop.com - PSD and Ford Superduty Parts.

Thanks for the compliment on the grill too. Again Ebay, it was modified to fit my year truck, a dude bought it for $300, 6 days after installing it his truck was totaled from the rear and he sold it to me for $125. The upgraded headlights also made a huge difference. I plan on installing the 05 lights when I get a decent deal on some!
Take care
