It comes with 2 sizes of brass NPT fittings to interface with your existing factory cooler, if equipped. Supposedly there is an orifice bypass which serves to prevent overcooling, I guess that's cool except if you live in Arizona where overcooling doesn't really happen and instead you'd rather have all the flow you can get.
In case anyone wants a reference of functionality, I have a 2001 S10 4x4 with 4.3L engine & 4L60E transmission. On 110 degree days at 75mph my transmission used to run 240F, now with this cooler it runs about 205-210F under those conditions.
I suppose in order to understand how I gauge this cooler to be effective a little background info would be good. I have a 96 Dodge Ram 1500 RWD. This model and similar models of the same period are well known for having transmission failures due to excessive heat as the built in radiator cooler was not sufficient.
Prior to installing the cooler I installed a B&M Temperature Gauge kit on the pressure line coming out of the tranny, that way I have a better Idea of the actual transmission temp than if it were installed on the return line as the instructions indicate. The next day I decided put my truck through its paces to see what the temps would be, at 4:00 in the afternoon it was 86 degrees and traffic is fairly heavy during that time of day. Inner city driving for about 45 minutes showed that the temperature would be about 240. Taking it out on the highway at 70mph dropped the temp to about to 220 on long flat stretches.
About a week later I installed the cooler in series with the radiator cooler going first to the B&M cooler then the radiator cooler (Keep In mind that the temp gauge is on the pressure line out of the tranny so it measures the oil temp before it gets the coolers). When I finished it was again about 4:00 in the afternoon, only it was now 102 degrees in the shade. I took it out again to run it through the paces to see what the result would be. Again I drove around the city in traffic for 45 min or so. Initially it took the tranny a good bit longer to get above 200 and then didn't get above 220 until I really stomped it a few times between lights to push the temp up. I then took it out on the highway again and the temp settled at about 200.Read more ›
The install took about 2 hours but I'm very careful with what I cut and where I mount it. The 4 feet of transmission hose that comes with the cooler was enough for me but that is mostly due to the way I mounted it. Mounting it in a different location would require more hose so I recommend that before you take too much apart you consider the location. Transmission hose can be purchased for a few cents a foot at an auto parts store.
In conclusion, I am so far very happy with this cooler. Once we begin pulling a trailer this summer in the heat the full truth will be known.
This is a nice preventative measure, makes your transmission cooler completly seperate from the radiator, its also very efficient and will cool your trans fluid far better than your stock trans cooler (very tiny compared to this unit).
If you have a Toyota 4Runner (3rd gen (1994 -> 2002), you will want to do this cheap preventative measure to save yourself atleast a grand or more down the line. (You will also need to source (2X) 3/8" Transmission cooler hoses, each about 6ft in length.
I installed mine behind the license plate holder and cut it away for good airflow. Prior to the cooler, the truck would spike up over 205F in just 10 minutes of towing by 6000lb boat trailer. Now I can't get it over 180F. I find that the fluid gets hotter with the truck idling than moving as crazy as that sounds. However given that the fluid runs through the radiator first, and then to my new cooler, it is actually bringing the temp up to the 210F operating temp of the engine, and not down.
Of note, make sure you keep the factory cooler in line. It heats the fluid in the winter time, and that is critical.
I'd recommend this product for a lot of cooling in a small form factor. Very solid as well. I dropped it and although the inlet bent a bit, it has worked just fine. Order some extra 3/8" hose though, or you'll be short.
ADD: In a test, the truck used to get to 205F towing the boat. Same test now, same ambient temp, is 167F. I've never gotten the transmission over 195F while towing.... ever. I tried.
