i have seen issues with getting the fluid level bang on as it is harder to do with more fluid, its easy to get an inconsistent reading. and the rest was my limited mechanical theory. i myself considered the tranny cooler mod, but was swayed by the possibility of creating another issue with my car. its more risky than headers, cai, etc.. its your transmission. it makes your car move. if you get a wrong its not gonna be pretty. but doing less riskier things like i said before might yield similar cooling results. i am no aerodynamic engineer, but simply put if you increase airflow to your hood compartment, by removing battery, free flowing grille, removed fog lights, wrapped intake,exhaust and a/c lines it is my opinion that it will do more good than cluttering up the front end of the already cramped engine compartment.
EDIT i did some searching and found a few examples of people running the tranny coolers, so as it may not destroy your transmission instantly, or quickly, but it will add more stress, you cant deny that. its like parking with your wheels straight instead of turned to protect your ball joints.
obviously you want to do an UPGRADE right?
i feel you can do a better more cost effective upgrade than the cooler.
the ways i mentioned would also lower hood temps, even better than just tranny temps
