Tranny Cooler for 7.3

I know this has been posted before but I can't find the link for the how to or write up.

Also what is the best way to go? The 6.0 one or this one http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=480, or something else?

Thanks guys

the 6.0l one is HUGE.... but for the price the v10 one is pretty good... i would do that one and a secondary cooler and it will prob still be cheaper than going with the 6.0 cooler

do you plan on upgrading your trans anytime soon ( or feel like it may break & need replaced)? if ya do - -wait till then to put another cooler on it! That way you're not doing it twice, cause once you get metal pieces in a cooler, its not "recommended" to reuse it...

No I don't want to upgrade it yet, I just think with the new chip and the 95 degree heat its running a little hot so I wanted to keep it as cool as possible.

I bought the tru cool and one day after it was delivered I found a 6.0 cooler on craigslist that was cheaper so I bought it.

Here is a nice pic for you to think about. the bottom is the 6.0 cooler, the middle is the trucool max I bought from bob at diesel site and the top is the sorry excuse for a cooler that was on my truck (NO stock cooler either!)



If you are interested in the trucool, PM me. I dont need it anymore since I got a 6.0 cooler and I am going to install that little one in the front grill in line with my 6.0 cooler.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Isn't that the truth... just be creative with your searches. I got one for 70 bucks and another for 100...
