ok, so would putting a tranny cooler on, help or not?
Yes, that is one of the first and foremost mods that you should do, regardless of forced induction.
And don't listen to crabapple Breeves (
), you shouldn't have to part with your SHO
just in the pursuit of a little HP here and there.

There's plenty of subtle mods like a honed intake or big bore butterflies, the tWeecer tuner, and many other things like cams as well.
Depending how deep you want to dig in your motor really depends on how much of a gain you want. Honestly, I'm about to custom tune my SHO
for the track, and I'm starting on the intake and on the way down. 80mm MAF
and cold air intake comes first then working down on the intake with BBC's and honing. From there I'll hit the cams and the PCM
, then the injectors, pump, and fuel rail, and finally I'll top it off with a supercharger. Of course all the little knick knacks will follow along the way.
I hope I helped, happy tuning!
