New Interiors, Have you seen any performance data on that style of cooler? I have seen ratings on the stacked plate style - in terms of trailer weight, but have not seen similar ratings on the finned cooler type. Most guys that use a trans cooler on their rod don't seem to run a trans temp gauge - regardless of cooler style.
Sorry I didn't see any data on them.. I ran them on every car I built and never had one fail yet,, No trans problems at all,, aluminum dissipates heat. I know from all mine and being around all the other hotrodders that they do work.. I would love to see the difference and the data sheet's but never have..I never run a trans gauge also..
