"food for thought"
at a stoplight at 600rpms in drive there isn't nearly enough tranny fluid gpms thru the cooler to cool 250lbs of tranny metal no matter how much air blows over it from the fan....

what does matter is unrestricted air flow thru and behind it when you are driving and pumping alot of gpm and the tranny is working hard....

mine is mounted on bolt stand offs for no air flow restriction behind it down in the lower valance and tons of air thru the cooler when driving....

leave the hoses way long when you first install it so you can try different locations if needed
