Hey guys,

Wanting to know what sort of transmission coolers people are using on the VR Ute.

The Ute has a surprisingly hard shift kit, stallie and cam so the transmission is worked relatively hard. All this has been installed fairly recently but with nil cooler installed.
I believe it has a couple hoses through to the radiator but want to back it up with a decent cooler.

Any suggestions or advice?

Thanks in advance guys

EDIT: Another quick question - Will a VR V8 Wagon Exhaust fit to a VR V8 Ute?? I have heard that the pan is the same but would like to confirm

running a alloy 400x200 here in the vs with transmax oil keeps it at 75c constant, not running it through rad.

Sounds like good ****.

Go and visit any speed shop for some decent tranny coolers.

Top ****! Haha did not notice that typo.

Cheers for the info guys, will have a hunt around this weekend.

Is that one of the DC ones in SuperCheap for ~$190?
