Engine/Tranny Oil Cooler

I like the idea of having an extra dual pass radiator mounted on my truck cooling my engine and tranny oil, but I was wondering what kind of set backs this would have and what experience you all have had with it? I was also going to put a remote mount oil and tranny filter piece in my truck, but I want to make sure I have enough pressure to run through both the remote mount filter and the radiator? and also where to mount the radiator. If I mount it infront of the stock radiator, would that cut the cooling to that too much? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Josh

Most aftermarket coolers mount in front of the stock radiator so I dont think that would be an issue.

Re: Engine/Tranny Oil Cooler

Blocking the radiator will not be an issue there's enough air blwing through there you shouldn't have a problem. As for the oil pressire, depending the additional length of the tubes/hoses, you can add the appropriate amount of oil to that it measures correctly on the oil dipstick. That will keep the pressure just fine.

sorry for the grammar, i'm on shot #5 of tequila [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
