trans cooler position

I dont have alot of room for an oil cooler in the front of my car but I do have alot of space under. Is it enough to use a cooler with a 10" fan or do transmissions need more? I have a C-4 with a 9.5" converter. Right now I dont have a cooler on it at all but I havent been driving it far.

heat sink

I used a heat sink tranny cooler on mine. I made a bracket and bolted it to the frame under the car.

I used a standard radiator style trans cooler on the '28 Ford truck mounted underneath the body on the passenger side. It was also hooked up to go thru the radiator trans cooler first. As long as you have a decent air flow thru the auxiliary trans cooler it should work fine without any additional cooling fan.

What works better the heat sinks or radiator style? I have a 9.5" converter so Im making alot of heat while running it on the street. Also my radiator doesnt have transmission lines, so I cant run it to that first.

If I run with the radiator style under the car, can I use any size cooler? Is bigger going to be better? Is one fan going to be enough?

HI EFFICIENCY RACE TRANNY COOLER

I use a dual cooler/filter from Moroso, fits right behind the midplate, left of the J&W ultrabell in upright position. See pic:

They are all good but to be safe, I like the positive cooling that one of these gives with the control that one of these 19001s gives. Can be mounted anywhere and still get great cooling performance. Air flow is the 800# gorilla when it comes to any type of radiator for cooling automotive fluids.

Same here, I use a FLUIDYNE Combo Cooler, the Moroso Cooler/Filter is just an add-on unit, makes sure that the heat created by filtering the oil is emitted, these fins are very efficient even when not directly mounted into free airflow.

What works better the heat sinks or radiator style? The radiator style works better but the heat sink is great for applications such as yours. No place to mount a radiator style.
