6.0 cooler or tru-cool??

Well i'm planning on getting either a tru-cool to add to my stocker or just replacing with a 6.0 cooler which would be better? The money factor isnt a huge deal just wondering which option would be better.

Re: 6.0 cooler or tru-cool??

Ifyou had a new BTS or JW I would say get the 6.0cooler. For a stock trans get the tru-cool.More cost effective and lowered my temps 30 deg. 6.0 cooler is to much money and if the stock trans fails I would not re -use the cooler on a new build.

That's easy, the 6.0 is better.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

Just put the tru-cool on my BTS drove 200 in 90 degree weather at 70 mph and didn't see any temps over 140.

Re: 6.0 cooler or tru-cool??

You can buy an aftermarket cooler that will stomp the balls off a torqshift cooler. They were popular because they were cost effective. They arent anymore, I dont consider this a good mod for the price. 3-400 for a stock transcooler? Thats nuts! Get a Hayden or check anybody that makes torqconvertors cuz they probably make one. Alot cheaper too!

The best aftermarket cooler made is a 4739 Tru Cool. It is about half what the torqueshift cooler is.

Re: 6.0 cooler or tru-cool??

ok thanks guys..i'll probably do the tru cool, would synthetic fluids and a mag hytec pan/pml pan help out temps any? Dont really have too much trouble with it getting warm except for when pulling out my buddies pre-runners and was worried bc i'll be buying/towing a boat this summer.

Re: 6.0 cooler or tru-cool??

I like my cooler from Diesel Site. It was well worth the $120 whatever dollars. I wanted the 6.0 cooler but I didn't want to un ass the money.

And yes, the Mag Hytec pan will help cool things as well. That pan also has something that helps hold the trans filter in place and keeps it from cracking.

Don't ask me why but when I talked to Brian at BTS he asked me if I kept the stock pan on my tranny from him and he for some reason he wasn't a big fan of an aftermarket pan. Just an fyi so you may want to do some more research on that topic.

He's not a fan of the deep pans because they are just that, too deep. Yeah, you get more airflow across them to help cool, but it actually has a negative affect on the fluid inside. See the filter/pickup tube gets the fluid off the bottom of the stock pan. But when you install a deep pan, you're sucking fluid from the upper part of the fluid, not the bottom. Brian's thought is that you're not getting proper fluid flow resulting in greater inefficiencies by having a deep pan and stock filter/pickup.
