HI,

I have XR6T Auto running 14psi into it.

Should I invest in a oil cooler for engine oil and also a transmission cooler?

Has anyone put a transmission cooler on their XR6T's?? Do they need them?

A transmission cooler is a very wise investment especially if it's edited and being flogged a bit. I put mine inside the drivers side guard just behind the foglight. For stuff like trackdays I take that foglight out altogether, makes a perfect scoop for ramming cool air into the transmission cooler. I also want an engine oil cooler but I'm not sure where that will go yet.

I bought a transmission cooler but the hoses are different size to XR6T hoses.

The part that bolts up into the radiator is different size. where do i get these pieces?

Fittings anywhere like Enzed, Brieley Hose and Handling or Purple Pig (those are the mobs down here that do it - I don't know which are nationwide and which arn't).

Hose from any half a*** auto parts store.

you'd want to hook up a tranny cooler. the fittings on the tranny cooler need to be atleast as big as those on the transmition.
