I live litterally down the street from BTS they make some awesome stuff. Pretty pricey though!

6.0 trans cooler is pretty much the ****, bts valve body with a chip tuned for it and you'll be fine.

BTS Valve body, full ATS internals with ATS torque converter, maytech deep pan, and a monster tranny cooler with its own fan. Might be a little overkill but it seems to be working amazing for me
