Thanks for the pics Rock.  I will probably install something, just want it to look clean and somewhat factory like.  I have installed stacked plate coolers in the past with the cheesy metal brackets they come with.  They worked fine on a daily driver/work vehicle, but I want something nicer for my Torino.

no pics, not sure i still have the coil but i might, buried in the pile?

i remember the coil is a 'double pass', it spits the flow and runs 2 parallel circuits from top to bottom then they rejoin together. i just cut the tube between where they rejoin and the A/C fitting for a simple hose on tube connection with double clamps. does this pic showing the magnetic inline filter count?

I have always run it back through the rad afterwards too when I have installed coolers in the past.  I figure it's also helpful with the colder weather we get up here.

i used the factory mounted A/C condenser in the front of the radiator,

then i ran it back through the radiator to establish & maintain a steady operating temp.

blow the excess heat off & stabilize ;)

I am wondering how many here have added an auxiliary transmission cooler?  I am thinking of adding one to my car.  I am just wondering what you guys are running?  If you're willing, please share some pics of your setup.
