Man.......... This is what i LOVE about this board!!!! Thanx Tom. I was unaware that the trany needed to be warm and that it would make a difference. I guess there may be someone who "might" have a difference of opinion, but either way, it's cool to know. I appreciate it.

I was also thinking........ (I know....  :oscarey Shocked) But, is it possible that the air to oil cooler you installed (between the shell cooler and the radiator- if I understand right) could actually help in cooling down the radiator?? Not that that would be a reason to do it, but it seems like it could on paper, if the air to oil cooler was big enough..........not? Just thinkin.........

Ok, now I'm back to an addition as opposed to a "swap".  Grin

   Our setup is the fluid coming from the transmission to the aux (oil to air) cooler, then to the OEM (oil to water) cooler, then returns to transmission. If the fluid is cooler than the water, it is heated by the water.
    Theoretically, if the fluid is cooler than the water, it would remove heat from the water, helping to cool the engine.  This is theory only, however, we have found that all temps (transmission fluid, water, and engine oil) run about 5-10 degrees cooler with our setup.  YMMV  Jack
