Installed my new trans cooler over the weekend. I made it way harder than it should have been. Grr....However, trans temps dropped at a sustained 90 mph in 107 degree heat to 200 degrees. I am happy. Also it appears my trans was overfilled almost by 2.5 quarts.......I have a theory on this.

When my trans was replaced at 3k miles of break in I did the 5 out and 5 in. My trans dropped 7 quarts....I should have know. I put 7 back and and checked the level. At that point it was high, but not crazy.

Working on it this weekend I wanted see exactly where it was at. Ended up dropping 2.5 quarts before it was happy. Geez. So yeah.

I also in a hast to get to breakfast closed the hood on a quart of trans fluid that I had placed in the engine bay.......that caused a mess and a mini panic attack....I am an idiot.

Oh No. That quart must have made a mess. Glad nothing broke.

Where did you hook the cooler up to ?

It was interesting to say the least.  I just used my stock PP lines and used the AN fittings to adapt the smaller line for the trans cooler.

Clean install...well it was clean until you dumped a quart of trans fluid over all of it!  Lol!  This is coming from me, who pumped my brakes and forgot my driver side caliper wasn't attached and pushed the pistons out!  Lol! 

A good self chuckle is all you can do!  I took some extensions for a ride on my wiper cowl also.  Heard a clunk hard turn ...then found those extensions...sigh of relief.

I have some data from my last road trip with the new trans cooler.

I drove from Phoenix to Costa Mesa.  Roughly 360 miles. 

Okay! Hottest the ambient temp got was 109. Fastest I got up to 105 mph. I averaged 88 through AZ, and roughly 83 through CA. Hottest the trans got was 199.23 degrees. I would say that is a win for the upgraded cooler.

On my return trip I averaged 88 mph through CA and 95 mph through AZ. Through Coachella (big long hill sections) in 113 degree weather my trans got to roughly 205 degrees. Ambient air temps never got below 109 degrees from Palm Springs all the way to Phoenix. After getting through the hills, it leveled off at 201 degrees. I will take those numbers all day.

All in all, good upgrade and I am happy with the results.  I can't wait to see what the temps look like in cooler weather.

Funny to read the above, as I was just watching the morning news, concerned about the mid to upper 90's forecast here in CHI-raq, coupled with excessive humidity (dew points in the mid to upper 70's) and I noticed that Phoenix is set to have a high temp of 110.

Holy hell that's blistering!

Glad to hear your new and recently upgraded trans cooler is keeping those hot AF temps easily at bay.

Keep staying chill!

But it is a dry heat!  LOL. 110 is warm but not too bad.  116+ is just straight annoying.

Incoming Upgrade:

I have needed a HPFP for awhile now.  I have tried every way to justify spending the money for a XDi.  I have come close to purchasing one more times than I want to admit.  However, I couldn't pull the trigger. 

That being said.  I know I will catch some crap for my next statement.

I recently purchased a slightly used FS pump.  I weighed the pros and cons (they can attest to that) and for the price I couldn't pass on the opportunity presented to me. 

What I took into account:

Yearly mileage of my SHO: Less then 4k a year (if that).  I don't daily my SHO.
Mods:  I have all of the supporting mods (minus turbos).
Single Fuel Source: I should be able to run straight E54 out of the pump.  No more mixing, just testing.
Fuel Pressure:  I won't have to worry about FP drops anymore (my stock HPFP recovers well).  I still have boost issues, but this should basically allow me to pin the gates closed and let them eat. 


I have only seen one documented FS HPFP failure (not all facts have been presented yet) and one with XDI.  I know there are a couple of 11 second SHO's on the FS HPFP as well. 

I will be removing my stock HPFP and vacuum sealing it.  It will make its new home in the trunk with the exact tools needed to change it out.  When I go on long road trips I will swap back in the stock HPFP and change tunes.  When I get to my destination, the FS HPFP will go back and I will reflash the tune. Then the GAP band tour will begin.

I will modify the foam and engine cover as well.  If I cant see it, then it isn't there?  Correct?
