Tru Cool Max

Well i finally broke down and bought a Tru Cool tranny cooler and i gotta say this is one aswome cooler easy to intall (had to make a few minor mods) but it was straight forward. i installed it in 45 min. It dropped my trans temps by about 40 degrees. This is worth every penny. I would reccommend this to anyone. Bob at diesel site has some great products. THANKS BOB!!!

Re: Tru Cool Max

I really like mine also. Did you mount it in the stock location, or in front of the A/C cooler? I mounted mine in the front.

Re: Tru Cool Max

I mounted mine right up front just barely above the bumper my trans was always around 180 to 190 unloaded now its 140 150 unloaded. i havent had a chance to pull with it yet but iam happy so far. but i mounted mine to the fiberglass grill mount that runs vertical and i shimmed it out and did a little trimming and it fit perfect.

Re: Tru Cool Max

I put mine just above the fact one. Took a while but I got it. It's too hot here to take a chance on putting it in front of the condensor, was 117* today. Pulled about 5 miles of 6% with my 13K lb trailer last weekend in 100* temps and the trans never got to 180* My E99 does not go through the rad and this thing works. Thanks Bob.

Pretty much exactly how I mounted mine. Just up higher. Thinking about putting the stocker back in the original spot and plumbing it back in, sorta like what Tbolt did.

It was a little more work Andy, I mounted it to those two supports that are in front of the ic. Had to tweak them a little to get it away from the cond. But with the two in series it really works. I did not get the thermal bypass for it so when I visit the kids up north in winter I'll have to put some cardboard on it to warm it but down here it is perfect.

Wonder if you could do a little extra plumbing and put a ball valve or two in there and drop back to just the stocker when in cold weather.

Might be something worth looking at. Cardboard is simple, but fancy plumbing just looks so cool.

Re: Tru Cool Max

Where I put it I'm not going in there unless I have to. I only go up there a couple of times in the winter so cardboard will be fine. Nobody will see the plumbing back there anyway. If I take it apart I'll put the bypass on it it's only like $42 from Bob.
