B&M Transmission Cooler Help!

Hey guys, I got the aux cooler and Im not exactly sure which lines tag into eachother. On the side of the radiator there is a white and black line. Any help from someone whos does this would be alot of help. Its pushing low 90s today so Id like to get started on this as soon as I can.

Thanks

I have one installed.
The upper line (white) should be the "return" line from the factory cooler that you want to splice into (double check me, it will also be the upper line into the transmission), there will be a small rubber section where you can do this.
After you cut this line, the radiator side of the splice should go to the IN side of the B&M and the transmission side should connect to the OUT of the B&M.
Hope that helps.

Ok gotcha, thankyou! I just got it mounted where it needs to be, but Ive got to run a few errands before I get going on the tubing. Just getting it mounted took me a little bit, this hot weather sucks because my hands get really sweaty lol.

Looking forward to getting this done, I can tell that the transmission isnt shifting like it should. I want to eventually get a tranny temp gauge, do you have one installed?

You could also run an in line oil filter with an oil filter relo kit. Then clamp a magnetic heat sink to the oil filter for even more fluid capacity, cooling and protection.

if you need extra tubing be sure to get transmission line, not fuel line. You want the line to handle the heat.

I use an aeroforce gauge plugged into the OBDII port. Other options are a temp gauge attached into the trans pan. There are threads on that set up.

Oh really? Can you get me a link on a temp gauge that plugs into the port? Seems less hassle if you want a gauge.

I went to autozone and asked for some 3/8" radiator tubing. I got 3 more feet. The job wouldnt have been doable with just the tubing that came with it. I cut off about 10 inches off the one that it came with.

Thanks for the help guys, I was cringing when I was cutting the hose the first time haha. All turned out good. Only a couple things to look out for. They only give you 4 hose clamps, when really you need 6. The other two I used on the cooler itself. So just something to look out for, because you will need 4 at where you make your splices. Also, needed 3 feet more line, worked out perfectly, only had less than a foot of hose leftover.

Also, make sure that the hose splicers are tight, i had a leak in no time so I added some thread sealer on the supplied parts and it seemed to fix the problem. All in all, it would be a really easy project if it wasnt so damn hot outside!

I use the aeroforce interceptor. They are a bit pricey but it do a lot more than just the trans temp.

why didn't you just use a barb? Instead of the treaded fittings.
