im going to be doing a manual conversion in around a month, so i wont need my auto transmission oil cooler.

BUT the Auto cooler is far bigger than the Power steering oil cooler (see attached picture).

so what im wondering is, if i can switch the PS lines over to the Auto cooler (of course after being flushed and such)... and use the old auto oil cooler for a power steering oil cooler?

or does the PS cooling need the copper radiator style cooler (which it has now)?
(the tranny cooler has 'fins' that are solid metal... and cant be bent.. so its pretty damn tough)

Should be no problem.

I am using an EL trans cooler for the pwr steer on my EB. No problems so far.
