Is it a good idea to use the trans cooler that's built into the radiator or is it best to use a seperate cooler?
Thanks

Depends on application and what you are doing with the vehicle.

On an 1/8 mile only car we very seldom use them at all. Street car, I would use a stacked plate type no matter what.

If you tow to the lanes, make a hit, and tow back to the pit you don't put much heat in it. So I guess it depends on your application.

X2. High h.p. + high stall speed = high converter temp.

High converter temp. = fried trans fluid.

Fried trans fluid = shorter trans life.
