In general the gasser oil parts are too small. These trucks flow 18.5gal/min (IIRC)..What is it rated for. And not to mention it'd take some work to reroute the oil & coolant.

I didn't even realize how small it was...lol I doubt this would do anything at that size. You would have to have like 25 of them in a row.

SO, Firstly....i posted the wrong pic....that one is the transmission cooler. This is the Oil Cooler...Part# 45901



My thought was to under-mount inside the frame rails. Maybe put another for the transmission. My concern came from adding another cooler infront of all of the rad and intercooler would un-necesarrily tax the systems.

I'm not concerned about the electrical draw BUT more concerned about crap getting stuck on top or hitting it.

I just dont think it would cool efficiently enough to make enough difference.
