Auto Tranny Cooler better than Fluidyne?

I've done a search on which is the best auto tranny cooler, but all I could find were people talking about the fluidyne tranny cooler. Is that the best one, or are there other options. I'm just looking to put down 300 max for now cause I need a car to drive to school. Thanks in advance.

There are plenty of other options - PermaCool, Hayden, etc. I use PermaCool for my engine oil cooler and it seems to work pretty well.

it really depends on where you mount it.
if it isnt gonna have a lot of airflow to it i would look at the permacool w/ the attached fan.
if it is open to good airflow id get the B&M. thats what i have.
im sure the others will work too, just dont have any experience w/ them.
whatever you do dont run the cooler pre radiator. some people run post radiator and some just run the cooler by itself.
also be sure you get oil hose or you are gonna have some issues.

good luck

If your serious about keeping an auto, get a tranny temp gauge. If you monitor everything else , Why not watch the tranny temp?

OK, so I should probably go with the B&M or Permacool and I should get a tranny temp gauge? So how hot is an overheated tranny?
