I'm looking into doing this for my Yaris. Think I should get the smallest B&M cooler? I don't pull anything w/ it, but I have been known to load the back up with a ton of ****(very temporarily).

Best thing to do is replace the factory steel and rubber cooler lines with straight 3/8" hose. The OEM stuff is really restrictive.
this man speaks the truth

Yeah, I would get one. I would get one for any automatic transmission. Its always a good idea. The smallest model they offer should be fine.

Those OEM lines are specially fit. The line retains itself onto the fitting, like a quick-release system if you want to call it that. Just how would you go about fitting 3/8" hose on there?

The best place for anything tranny related, www.bulkpart.com.
I haven't installed one on my Taurus yet, but am planning on it. The one I have on my '98 Astro is a plate and cooler type, but the big thing about it is the automatic bypass valve. It only is used when the fluid needs cooled. The package is a complete kit too, fittings, hose, clamps, etc.

Bought new by my grandparents in Ohio. I shipped it to California in 2008 with only 69k on it. I love this thing!

The fittings on the transmission itself can be removed - the threads on the transmission housing are 1/4" NPT. As for the fittings at the radiator, you can either cut the OE metal tubing and clamp the 3/8" hose over them, or bypass the OE cooler in the radiator entirely and only run an aux cooler.

Not really a bad idea at all. This might actually help with engine cooling capacity and the aux should be more than enough for the trans.

I bypassed mine. So far using the Gen 2 SHO cooler (which is a perfect fit for the Gen 3) it is so efficent I had to put a oil t-stat on it. We'll see what happens in the summer.

The removal of it from the radiator does relieve the engine cooling system of quite a heat load. And the radiator does not add any heat in the winter as by the time the coolant does not ever really get hot enough on the cold side of the radiator to significantly raise the tranny oil temp.

Without the radiator cooler and with the Gen 2 cooler in the winter the oil temps would not get above 125F. Now with the 180F t-stat the oil temp will eventually get up thee even in the coldest weather. But fo most of my driving of less that a 1/2 hour in cold weather the oil will get up to ~150F.

Just to add, I did the exact same thing as Paul - bypassed the OE cooler, installed a gen 2 SHO ATX aux cooler, and put in a remote tranny thermostat.
