    The tiny one that runs in front at the bottom of it? And can we pull it off and replace it with a large aftermarket one, or must it be replumed (new word?) and new holes drilled into the pan? :dunno:

    ahhh, ok. Is there any way to disconnect it and replace it with an aftermarket one using the hoses in place, or does it have to be re-piped for that?

    all i did was find out wich is the return line and after it comes out of the rad cut the line and run it to the new cooler and the return for the new cooler hooks up to the factory line you cut

    you dont have to use the factory setup at all but it gets cold here and with my b&m cooler blocked off and the atf still going threw the rad cooler in 40 degree weather it might only show 100-110 degrees on my tranny temp gauge. so i run both to keep some heat in the fluid.

    oh and when its in the high 90-100 degrees it never goes over 170 degrees unless im being evil to the tranny ;D
