    what are the demensions? have a link to it so we can see it? usually in front of the condenser is where the trans coolers are put. kind of a PIA to do but if it fits with all of the ducting in there, just remove the ducting to give you room to install and then put the ducting back in.

    It may fit in front of the condenser but yea it will be reall tight. I just don't know if it will clear the ducting or not.

    Is this something no one puts in??? Or no one takes pics of or what?? I'd really like to see / hear about where others have installed these. I havent even seen a pic of one IFO the AC condenser. With just about every modded trans thread I have read on here everyone recommends a cooler. Somebody has to have something.

    I found a pic here of one. Looks to me like it blocks alot of air to the radiator. But that appears to be the best/only location for this. Let us know what more you find.

    Thanks to you that threw up some pics. With the SLP Cold Air induction from the bottom, I screwed myself for the install shown in the pics. I'm going to change out the panhard bar and LCA's w/relo brackets today. Then I think this weekend I will just take it up to a local trans. shop and ask them where they would recommend putting it. There isnt alot of room/options left.
