    Just had my transmission overhauled and a shift kit fitted (bloody beautiful). Next is to fit the oil cooler. Anyone see any reason why I can't install the new cooler in series with the one in the radiator? Or would it be better to bypass the inbuilt radiator cooler and connect inlet and outlet direct to the new one?

    Your thoughts gentlemen:)

    Your aftermarket cooler should do the job fine Cliff...

    After all, they are made to replace.

    Personally, I plugged the standard trans cooler in the radiator and run hoses direct to the external cooler.

    If the OEM one blocks the cooler wont work.?

    I asked the cooler guy (about connecting in series)and he suggested that if the original one blocks up then it will stop the cooler.

    I've heard that too.....>>

    For that reason I bypassed the stock cooler when I first fitted my trans cooler. Apparently transmissions dying because of overheating isn't because the stock cooler doesn't cool, but because it clogs with crap too easily and then becomes a blockage.
