The biggest one you can fit wherever your going to mount it. I always liked the B&M tranny cooler kits you can buy. Their biggest one should fit in front of the A/C condensor without any problems.

If you have a part # on the B&M tranny cooler that would be great, I don't want to order 1 that wont work the way it needs to. :ty:

Summit has a good selection of coolers. Any of them would be a good improvement over the stock setup. The larger the cooler the better, but depends on how much you wanna spend too. Also look closely at them as some don't come with the install kit which is fittings and hoses. :D

Good link...another vendor I buy stuff from, they're reasonable, and carry pretty much any transmission part you might need.
