I'm using one. Wasn't really thrilled with the size of the gooseneck on both the inlet and outlet. Both are smaller that the corresponding ones on the engine/waterpump... made it difficult to find hoses... also wouldn't waste money with internal tranny cooler if you are automatic and reverse rotation as the cooler is in the hot side tank...
If I had to do it again, I'd either do the Ron Davis unit or check out the super cheap one mentioned in other threads...
just my $.02...

Wow. A local speed shop still in business? Definitely support those guys and keep that store open!
Haven't seen one around here in ages. And we used to have TONS of them.

But I guess things change... And just to prove that point yet again, my local Radio Shack is going to close at the end of the month. Knew it was coming sooner rather than later, from all the chatter, but having been my little doo-dad go-to spot in that location for almost 50 years, it's going to feel strange when it's gone.

Should probably feel guilty for calling it Radio Shit Shack all those years!:-[
