Is anyone running a transmission oil cooler on their au xr8.
I'm after any info or tips regarding mounting one and where to tap into the transmission casing

Cheers

Nathan

If you want to run a Trans cooler on a manual box you will need to set up a pump to circulate the oil.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^AND...run a filter system, and use the fill plug and drain plug holes as the return and suction, respectively.
