Trans Cooler

Next week I am going to install a 40k trans cooler. Should I leave the factory cooler on or take it off.

Leave it there and put your new cooler in line after the factory cooler.

I would buy a JW T/C if it were me. But then again, I have one and it is awesome. Call and talk to John, he might have a couple of options for you depending on your mods and future goals....

However you will probably find that John will say to stay with the stock convertor until it dies since a billet convertor takes more oil and if you put one on without modding the pump, it will starve the trans of oil and kill it real fast.

I personally don't like the PI convertors, I am a Ford guy.

Thanks for the info. Didn't know if running another cooler would effect the line pressure or not.

John did not worry about it on my set up. Must not be a problem or he would have taken it off when he built my trans.
