    There is an interesting thermodynamic balancing act here..... The bigger the trans cooler, the more it heats the engine coolant. Since they both share the same air mass, there is no free lunch.

    It doesnt matter . The fluid is being pushed by the transmission pump and will go either way just as easy

    So if I am reading this thread correctly I’m seeing 1 person say don’t put it inline with the factory and another saying put it inline, but downline the factory. Any additional information on why 1 is better than the other? I’m getting the transmission serviced and was going to add a cooler before I had it serviced. My original plan was to get a cooler and put it inline with the factory, but now having second thoughts. Can you give any additional insight? Sorry if this hijacks the thread, I can start another if necessary.
