Trans oil cooler

So I have a 2009 which we all know lacks certain things you would expect if a car like this...

The forge trans cooler is circa £2k... Does anyone really know why??

Is this not a standard mocal part that you can pick up for less that £100?

In for the updates

I want something for my 2010 car and about to go through some steps for custom brake cooling. So wouldnt mind doing something for the trans cooler at the same time.

GT-R tax. As usual.

Charles Charlie on here made his own one up and it was noticably cheaper.

It's on here somewhere.

He did post about it and also ran through it when I was looking at a cooler for my MY11.
In the end I was short of time before track days so I just bought a HKS one and got Sly to fit it.

I liked his solution better with an additional pump in all honesty though as the HKS one used the stock fluid pump and with the greater capacity it did make it a bit noisier.
Nothing terrible, but once you know the noise is there...

I never ran a project thread for my car as I didn't consider it interesting enough.
The project section was mainly full of threads by tuners showing off massive bhp cars that people were throwing loads of money at.

Have a look at the HKS cooler. Whilst the costs are higher for the pre-fabricated brand name coolers I am not sure I would be swayed into CC's solution for the price difference (400 GBP). Admittedly fitting was quoted as being much longer on the forge kit. I have the HKS kit on mine, I had issues with my forge cooler at the ring, it could have been a dodgy pump (Forge did replace it with no fuss at all), but given I have the HKS diff cooler, the trans cooler seemed a smart bet. The HKS cooler looks to be incredibly good quality. The lines are solid pipes in the places they can be and the fitting is spot on according to Lee @ SRD who fitted it for me. I don't tend to notice the noise (although my car is a bit louder than stock), and I have had no trans temp problems since it was fitted. Just my 2c.

Good luck with your choice, whichever you decide.

Yeah, I also thought the CC would be a little cheaper. How much was the HKS one?

Another vote for the HKS one, superb build quality.. Only downside is the additional noise from the oem pump.

Guys with the HKS one, whats the temps like after quite a few laps? Do they get to 11x and remain there?

The engine coolant temperature doesn't rise in line with the trans temp so the amount of cooling isn't in question, but the ability for the trans to transfer temp to the engine cooling system is. Better heat exchanger, CNC take off plate, trying to minimise amount of fittings to keep cost down... Should work well.

Will then also have options to split the system and run it's own core and water system. Removes any issues with heavy, expensive high pressure lines flapping about under the car.

Slightly off topic.... is it worth doing the circlips and magnets while doing a cooler like this?

Yep its a box out job for circlips.. solenoid servings and pan magnets can be done at the same time, the HKS trans cooler doesn't come with the uprated sump pan. It can work quite happily without out.. aftermarket sump pan's have additional benefits such as heatsink cooling and sit alittle lower and are more rigid.

Oh and temps typically stick around 87degs when road driving.. at rockingham on a hot day, I did get it past 105degrees..

I have just purchased 10ltrs of WR35TML as changing the tranny oil next week when car goes to [email protected] for 54 month service on Tuesday. Was looking at Willall's offerings and they have an entry level cooler WR35TC-Lite which mounts at the rear by the ARB and a higher level cooler WR35TC that can be front or rear mounted and comes with their own custom tranny sump. Cost for the WR35TC-Lite is $1495 AUD and for the WR35TC is $2995 AUD. So works out at around £1600 for the WR35TC and £818 for the WR35TC-Lite. Granted you would need a custom sump tray for the lite but knowing Willall's rep with their products I'm tempted with the WR35TC and mounting it at the rear???

Have a look at the link below.....Would value opinions
