I put it between the radiator and the condensor since I don't want the cooler to reduce the efficiency of my a/c (but with the bigger size would make up for the loss of cooling after the condensor). Anyhow, it took me 3 hrs or so but it's a perfect fitment in there. Did a couple of flush and man, after 6K miles, tranny fluid looks brownish comparing to the new cherry red fluid...
If you are not going to install a cooler, at least do your car a favor and flush it with new fluid!!!
You can pick up a Hayden one from Pepboys. It is the same one that B&M sells...I bought it from summitracing for $46 plus 7 shipping (handling fee) so it comes out to $53 plus some change. Pepboys sells it for $49 plus tax should roughly around $55 or soemthing..but you get it right away. If I knew it's the same one, I would have bought it there.patrick said:
I'm thinking of putting in a tranny cooler too. Will the B&M 70268 fit the 1999 TL? :dunno: Can you pick this up at most auto parts store? How much did you pay for the 70268? Thanks!
Austin, quick question. When you say "255" what model of B&M are you referring to? I'm looking at a flyer that is advertising B&M tranny coolers, and they list the following:Austin519 said:
3) Randomwalk101 I would suggest against your larger size cooler and anyone else buying the larger size if they plan on putting it anywhere but in the back, after talking with B&M. You don't want a bigger cooler, though you would think bigger is better, because you don't want to overcool your fluid. The B&M cooler has in it a valve that cuts half of the cooler off if the fluid isn't hot enough, and you are circumventing that by getting a larger cooler and thus, with the valve closed, a larger half used. The recommended size is the 255, I would stick with that. I'm even a bit concerned with your larger size...even though it's between the other two coolers...
