Now, let's talk oil cooler. Some may have noticed that we disconnected the stock tranny cooler to run the bigger, fan assisted unit and then plugged the stocker off. When my Ram returns to L&M next week, the plan is to use the ports right above the oil filter to route AN lines up to the stock transmission cooler coupled with the stock oil temp sensor and a thermostat.

Thus far, and in 100 degree heat mind you, I'm averaging between 212-235 degrees for oil temperature. This is actually less than the Challenger guys run with their water cooled filter setup thanks to the mechanical fan and 180 thermostat. After the cooler, I hope to maintain a steady 212.
