Trans Cooler Lines sizes

Im putting in a E4OD into my truck, the trans is from a 97. The only thing left todo is to bend up new Trans cooler lines. Anyone know what size of tubing I should get?

If I were you I would go with SD lines, they are bigger diameter and with help flow/cool better than the obs lines. I am in the process of doing this now since I do heavy towing and plowing with my truck.

Re: Trans Cooler Lines sizes

I have a roll of 3/8" Hard line. I dont have any of the fittings for the line to trans. I guess I would have to find larger fittings?

Re: Trans Cooler Lines sizes

The fittings on the Trans are based on the line size. They are a inverted flare. That said you will need to use a reducing coupling a few inches away from the connection as you can not just put on a larger fitting. The flared tube makes the seal, the captive nut goes over the tube just to hold it in place.

Re: Trans Cooler Lines sizes

What diameter are the SD lines and do they have to be hard (i.e. steel) could you run flexible....say hydraulic line? Would 1/2" id line be too big? Still chewing on my V10 cooler setup and am thinking bigger is better (1/2") but need more input...
