Re: Auto transmission coolers
Before I did the conversion to a manual, my XF had the standard setup for cooling it down (you know, hooked up to the radiator). When I moved to QLD, I found that the box wasnt performing as well when it got hot (as it does up here). What I did was get a pipe cutter and cut the top line on the cooler lines and put it through an external Borg Warner cooler (250X300mm) of which everyone swore was the best type to use, and found that the change up and down, squark, general performance and was hugely improved. Using both coolers (the radiator to take the bite out and the external cooler to cool it furter) was one of the best mods i did to that car. As eveyone knows, gearboxes love cool oil and it lasts longer too. But I had to go over to the other side and get a manual xmission. Xmission cooler cost about $100 second hand but cheaper ones are deffinatly available.
