Trans cooler for the GC SRT8
 
So my rough in is complete. I only fabricated 2 pieces and that was the sheet metal I used for mounting the cooler. All parts were purchased from Summit Racing and Home Depot.

1- EAR-41606ERL Cooler with -6an fittings
2- DER-13032 3/8 compression x 3/8 barbed
1- HDA-106 4.5 ft 3/8 hose
1- SUM-220701 -6an Female Straight to barbed
1- SUM-220711 -6an Female 90 to barbed
Home Depot
4- 3/8-5/8 hose clamps
10ft 3/4 galvanized strut only need 27 inches
2- 1/4 strut nuts
2-1/4 x 1 bolts
Fabbed
2- 1" x 5" sheet metal
8- 1/4 tek screws

I just need to buy some paint and do the final install. Here are the pics.

shr ftmfw!

so for the cooler does the fluid still go thru the radiator like factory, you just added this to the same loop back to the trans?

Yes, if you look at the second pic, you can see the two brass fittings and I rotated the one that is facing down. That is where I cut the line so if I followed the lines right, it should go through the stock cooler and then my new cooler and back to the trans.
