tranny cooler

the better tranny coolers are those that have a flange to mount them, fittings to screw into the rad cooler, hoses made for tranny fluid and related pressure, good gear clamps that won't cut the hose and also they will automatically byp**** when they are cold. i don't know what climate you drive in, but up here in Canada we gotta use the bypass style, plus they are way easier to mount. do you not have cooler lines (steel) from the existing trans that you would normally use for this? usually you just disconnect one of those lines at the rad and it goes to the cooler then comes back to the rad connection again. the cooler goes inline. the rubber hoses are just meant to be short flex lines to make the connection possible. check out a tranny repair shop, they can usually steer you straight on what size cooler and may have them in stock.
