Question Trans cooler

I want to add an auzillary cooler.

Advice on which one?

Saw one from BD, seems like a good price, goes in line before the stock cooler..

my suggestion is to just go with a 6.0L cooler... the size diff between the stocker and the 6.0L is a joke.....

But at what cost? The BD is $192.50 -$210 range I think...

you can prob find one around that price....

what GVW is that BD your looking at? seems a lil pricey to me... check out this link: Heavy Duty Oil Coolers

even the 32k is under 150 bucks

The BD does not say GVW rating, but has an electric fan that can be turned on automatically with a temp sensor, or manually from the cab...

BD Diesel Performance Cooler, BD Diesel Transmission Coolers

I checked and a 6.0 cooler is over $300 from one on line dealer...so...

i have almost the same setup.... but mine is from a diff brand.... it is ok but no way big enough to keep our trucks cool enough... i saw almost a 60 degree drop in temps with the 6.0L cooler...

i had a buddy of mine here locally that was selling one for cheap.. ill see if he still has it...

only thing is that the box got wet so it has no box... i would have to make one to ship it and that would be a PITA considring how big it is...

let me email him and ill get back to you....

just so you see the size diff... the stocker and the 6.0L cooler

I figured a deep pan, the BD cooler and the stock cooler all together would be enough..
I do wonder where I would fit the BD in though...not a lot of places..and I don't want to reduce the radiator's cooling capacity..
Thanks for the help Raul.

I absolutely agree w/going with the 6.0L cooler. The stocker is 9 rows, the 6.0L is 31 rows. <--- EDITED by ME, changed from 25 to 31. Good pic above!!!

I can't believe how much cooler my tranny runs, especially when towing my 5th Wheel trailer. If there's a way to get one, do it.

I installed a 6.0 tranny cooler on my 96 7.3. Droped the temps 50*! She rarely gets above 120*.
