A tranny cooler thermostat is nice but not absolutely necessary.

The main thing is that there be unobstructed airflow in and out. The closer it's placed to a surface, the less potential airflow it'll have. Keep it away from the exhaust and you'll be fine.

NEW INTERIORS I have used them before, With no problems at all... I think I had them on about ten cars I had..

If your going to use one.. Get the one with both fittings on one end... That way you don't have to have the extra hose it takes to run to the back side.. Much easier..

I haven't used one of those, but lots of guys have. Any is better than none. Maybe you can search for the specs on one of those to see how much they compare. None of them are particularly expensive - especially when compared with a transmission re-built!

sedanbob Since your cooler has a fan, it should be good just about anywhere you put it. Most of the coolers with fans also have a thermostat to control it. I think the thermostat is a good idea - you don't need to keep the trannie cold. The stacked plate style have more cooling capacity than the finned tube style.

I run a trans cooler like this one..In all my cars.. Mounted under the car or truck right inside the frame.. Ran these for years with no problems..

If you have one with a fan that makes it even better.. You can run it anywheres under your truck you want...Just make sure you have it where the fan can push air though it.. Keep it away from the exhaust as much as you can.. You should be OK..
