Also I should probably change filter/ fluid and Adjust the bands. I was told the trans are good if you adjust the bands every 20k miles. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

If I haven't mentioned it yet it is a niner.
I went with a smaller 11x7'' one. I have a clutch fan that sucks a lot of air thru there so I should be fine. I plan to block the air in that spot in the winter time. Its not huge but its better than nothing. Im running the cooler line thru the radiator also.

This one. At first I mounted it dead center and even with the top of the condenser. Bad idea.. Had to lower it a few inches because the hood latch was hitting it when I went to put everything back together. (I was also doing the Radiator too..)

Ill have to check the local parts store to see if they can order something like that. I prefer to use them over a big napa chain store.

Mine is 11" x 3/4" thick. I don't think you can fit a bigger one in without cutting some stuff.

I think Im going to replace mine with the one you have. And eliminate the cooler line routing through the trans and widen the gap on the louvers so that heat can escape. I shut the engine off and the temp tends to increase 20-30 degrees whike it sits there. The stupid clutch fan I have isnt as impressive in the warmer weather.

No. The 98's didn't have a factory cooler. Chrysler felt that the upgrade to the radiator cooler was good enough for some reason. Which is is not.
