transmission cooler

I understand the early 99s dont have a T-mission cooler in the radiator, I tow a 5th wheel and need to know a good aftermarket cooler that will work. Early 99, 4"flowmaster turbo back, DIY filter,guages and chip to come soon.

Correct, my early '99 auto did not either. I eventually replaced the radiator, a cooling line, and upgraded to a 6.0L cooler when I was redoing a lot of things on the truck.

Cdevenson - I'm amazed, maybe it's because you have a 6sp? But that seems backwards. Are you sure it's an early '99? Also, with an early '99, how are you going to upgrade to the gtp38r you have in your sig?

Maybe 'cause it's a 6sp. My build date is 6/98 so that makes it E99. I'm going to swap out the uppies, flange, pedistal, y pipe, and intake runners to make the 38r work.

Why would the hand shaker even need a trans fluid cooler?

They shouldn't get that warm though, should they? I never paid attention enough to know the handshaker SD's had a trans oil cooler... learn something new every day!

To tell you the truth, I don't know. I've been considering getting a tranny temp gauge to find out though. How efficient are the tranny coolers that go thru the radiators as opposed to the external coolers that are common?
