Hot Trans - BA?

hi all,

well I have done over 2000 k's now in my ba xls v8 ute and all is almost well.

I finally got the sound I wanted by going to 2 polk audio 8 inch sub's in the back replacing the standard 5x7's, these subs are hooked up to a clarion 110 rms per channel amp using the rear speaker outputs./

The front speakers (5x7's in doors replaced with clarion 5x7's) run directly off the head unit with a 400mf capacity wired in to remove base signals allowing them to produced mids and highs only.

The result is excellent, crystal clear mids and highs with tight controlled & balanced bass.

One question though, I have noticed when driving that the centre consol (next to tissue box) gets very hot were your knee rests against it, so hot I can hardly touch it (it is auto by the way), anybody else find this?

cheers

Re: Hot Trans - BA?

Is there any difference in the temperature of the inlet and outlet pipes to the cooler (if they are still in the radiator), after a short drive.

Overhot transmission oil will not last too long!
