Question Transmission cooler??

Hey Guys,

I am considering "upgrading" to a later model Falcon (currently have a 5spd EA) with auto trans. I use my current falcon to tow my rally car but have been told that an auto may need a transmission cooler for this sort of towing.... is it a requirement?

thanks,

jez

Heat is the big transmission killer, so the answer is "better with one than without one"

cheers

Never had any problems with stock manual trans and clutch, but my gf won't drive a manual! :) Any idea how much one of these guys will set me back?
