    I mounted a tube and fin style transmission cooler on our car. I looked at the stacked plate style, but felt with the laid back radiator that it might not work as well. Here is how ours is mounted:





    All I had to do was cut the plastic panel a bit to allow the lines to pass through to the front.

    Be very careful with the retainer clips when you push them through, if you damage a cooling fin you will have either a transmission fluid or coolant leak. Or both.

    Mine is a bit bigger than what you have shown it seems there isn't enough clearance. There's an air duct that runs down the radiator to the bottom of my air box. I found a smaller cooler but its rated at half the btu of my current cooler.

    When mine was still an auto I mounted it in front of the a/c condenser as well without a problem. I used a Hayden 679 unit that is a plate style rated up to 30000 GVWR. I had also tapped the pan for a temp sender and with this cooler, even in summer traffic in MS the fluid temp never got higher than around 140.

    Here is a link to the cooler on Amazon:

    ^^ You turned the cooler so that the plates ran vertical -- that is the only way to run that style in our cars imo.
