    Bigger is better. trans coolers

    So I've always believed theirs no kill, like overkill. What Im wondering is though, can I actually go to large with a trans cooler? Purchasing one with a check valve for winter driving anyway, but worry it may open and close a lot if I go to large, and may cause too much temp fluctuation.

    Am I obsessing over unimportant details again, or is this a legitimate concern.

    Thoughts?

    I have that cooler on my truck, I added a trans temp gauge when I first got the truck and don't see much fluctuation if any. Heated up quickly in the winter as well.

    Well, went ahead and ordered it with the thermal bypass so I shouldnt have to cover it in the winter anyway. I'd like to have a before and after of trans temps before it arrives. I think EFI Live can monitor trans temps, at least Ive heard it can, so I wouldnt have to mount a gauge in the truck.
