Transmission cooler
So after some research, and some general poking around... it seems the 8 speed likes to run a lil warm... and if it's one thing that really break transmissions is heat!

But I was wondering.. Does the WK2 SRT have an transmission oil cooler? if it doesn't I'm surprise SRT didn't include one just for the WK2 giving it's size

When I get mine I wouldn't want my Trans to exceed 200 degrees under load

Re: Transmission cooler
While it does run hot, it is really stable. I have towed 6500 lbs with mine frequently and on the highway and cruising, the temp stays no higher then 203. Even when I did some drag racing, it still stayed around 200. I haven't seen it outside of its daily operating range, and it warms up really slow. I wouldn't be too worried about the tranny temps in this one, because it seems managed very well.

Re: Transmission cooler
The GC SRT does have an Air to Oil Transmission oil cooler as part of the front cooling module. This is the same cooler used with the A580 5-speed in 2012-2013 MY.
