Tranny Cooler??

Hey Guys,
I took out 3rd and 4th in my oem tranny so I ordered a Heavy Hauler from NADP. Now Ford wants me to buy a new OEM tranny cooler. I can get 2 tru-cool tranny coolers for the price of one OEM.
Is it ok for me to NOT have an OEM tranny cooler and run 2 tru-cool tranny coolers instead?

I would upgrade to the 6.0 cooler since it's a direct bolt in of place of the stock 7.3 unit.

What about the tru-cool though. Does it not bolt into place too? I've never seen one installed but assumed it would bolt right in.

I know there is one guy on here who runs 2 Tru Cool 40Ks on his truck. I have my stock OEM and a Tru Cool 40K mounted at the front of my grille to the grille support. You can also mount it behind your license plate mount and remove that mount.

If you want the best cooling for your truck, 6.0 has 31 rows, each 40K tru-cool has 14 rows for a total of 28 rows. Stock has only 9 rows. Make sure you get the 31 row 6.0 tranny cooler, they do also have a 28 row I believe. No more worrying about your tranny tems again.
