Here are more photos of my trans cooler plumbing, sorry Brian for the thread takeover...at Least it's on topic lol. It appears they tapped into the side of the engine block where the block heater would go. It goes to the trans cooler heat exchanger and then back to the engine block. That lower large bolted box that the lower coolant tube goes to is a mystery to me. Not sure what that is:

My B500 always runs within 5 deg of the coolant temp regardless of load.

Jack, my engine is set to 500hp and is already at it's limit just keeping itself cool. So i think I really need to remove the added heat load of the 748 and have it cool itself via aux cooler. Cliff, your aux cooler is just a little too large for any space I have back there. I could go 29"x28" and that's about maxed out for me. I'll see what Hayden has.

Can I ask why we don't just exhaust the air out the rear blower lift door? It could have rubber seals around the holes so that when it's closed it's not leaking suction air. But this would stop the engine from being blasted with salt spray from winter roads, etc.

I think you have a Atec transmission, if you do with a silverleaf or prolink you should be able to read the transmission temp.  If it is only 10 to 20 deg higher than the engine it shouldn't be a problem.

If he has a way to cool the extra 10 or 20 degrees
