Sucks to hear about the tranny. 1600 is a great price, especially for the TQ converter and updated parts. These 4R44Es suck man, I am on my second failure after having the last rebuild done about 30,000 ago. My rebuild was 2500!

Time for the manual!

it is an aftermarket transmission cooler......do a search for them on Summit's website.....i have one on mine and it makes a world of difference in the tranny temp......it just goes infront of your radiator and then ties into your transmission lines that go into the radiator...
