the radiator reduces the temperature of the water before flowing through the trans cooler heat exchanger, which in turn aids in the reduction of transmission fluid temps, as the heat sink transfers heat from the fluid.
The trans cooler we have in mind will be connected in series with the OE heat exchanger and will see the transmission fluid flow through the core post heat exchanger, prior to returning to the transmission.
We could most definitely do a stand alone trans cooler but that would require modification to the OE rad', coolant hoses and transmission fluid line, thereby precluding the kit from the DIY guys.
