Plan to get this done as decribed in the next week to 10 days. Spoke with my auto shop today and they seem to think this would be a good setup. I will take pics and post data as soon as I have it.

I also contacted a BMW M3 owner over on M3post that tracks his M3 more than anyone over there. He was running his car so hard that he would get tranny temp limp modes even though M3 has an aux transmission cooler. He apparently plumbed a larger cooler that is about 10" x 10" in series to the stock transmission cooler....so he essentially has 2. FYI, the M3 aux transmission cooler is the same part number as our factory oil cooler in the right bumper. I am planning to plumb a 11" x 11" x 1.5" B&M cooler. Here is a pic of his setup. I can not do this in my wheel well because I already have the ER dual oil coolers so I plan to place this in front of the radiator. Talking to the B&M rep and reading the Corvette forums they seem to have no issues with water temps rising by blocking the radiator.

Will update when I have more to add...
