Tranny cooler install help

Ok guys,
Which one should I get here is what I am looking at:

Hayden Automotive - Fluid Coolers - SummitRacing.com

Also, can somebody explain how I would run this in line with my stock cooler. I don't believe it it too hard, but my questions are one line puts the fluid in the cooler and one line takes it out, but which one.

Do I need to add more fluid since I am add another cooler?

I am guessing that the new cooler will come with directions on how to install it on the radiator.

Sorry for being a noob.

I got a 26.5k one for my fullsize truck.

Just buy the biggest you can afford and that will fit infront of the radiator... Also, just remove the stock cooler, just take the lines off the stock cooler, remove cooler, and find a way to make the lines fit into the new cooler, mine came with rubber lines and hose clamps.

cooler

Inlet is usually on the top side of the cooler and outlet on the bottom. As far as which one to go with I would run the largest one possible. What I did with mine was run a large 72-plate cooler w/ electric fan in replacement of the factory cooler. Then I added a Temp. sending switch in-line for the fan and a trans temp. autometer gauge (150-250temp.) w/ pillar pod mount.

Did you have to add more ATF when you replaced your stock cooler with bigger one you added? Can you send me a picture of your set or pm me a picture of it?
