As the thread title says, what is the size of a gen2 SHO ATX transmission cooler?

Thanks.

Wow, that's quite impressive. I'll have to scope my local salvage yard for an ATX Gen2. The gen2 SHOs I've found there are both manuals.

Yes, I drilled and tapped it for a 1/4 " bolt. Very hard steel so you have to start with a small bit and work your way up.

You wouldn't happen to know anyone that has an extra laying around that I may purchase.

Did you bypass the radiator or is it connected in series?

It's the best there is for a Gen 3-4.
I am looking at putting a trans. cooler in my Gen. 4 Sable.

Do you happen to know what the square footage or square inches is of this cooler ? In case I can not find a Gen 2 sho Trans. cooler, I was looking to find a cooler with the approximate cooling area!

What was your highest trans. oil temperature of your sho non race track driving before the cooler was installed and after it was installed ?

Is the trans. cooler a better way to go than going to Synthetic ATF with the higher temperature (240 F) capability than the conventional ATF ?

How does the trans. cooler affect the transmission operation in the winter ( I live in Michigan) as far as the torque converter clutch functioning. I understand that the transmission has to be up to a certain temperature before torque converter clutch (OD) will function ?

Thank you in advance,
