When installing the Jegs 60389, you have a number of mounting options. Since this cooler comes with a fan, the easy installation choice would be to install it in a remote area that may not get as much air flow as you would in front of the air conditioning condenser.
Depending on space, this cooler can be installed underneath or at the very front of your vehicle, where the fan will allow for adequate cooling, and make up for the lack of air flow from the cooling fans on the radiator.
Extra Installation Parts
If you are planning on using this cooler, and would like the fan to automatically turn on, you need to also purchase a transmission cooler fan switch. This is an inline transmission cooler thermostat that is wired to the fan on the cooler, and turns the fan on when fluid temps reach 180F, and typically turn the fan off when temps get back down to around 165F.
For the Jegs 60389, we recommend the Derale 13021 in-line thermostat. This thermostat has -6an threads, so would be a perfect compliment to the -6an fittings on the cooler. This will allow for a seamless installation to get your fan to kick on automatically, taking the worry out of transmission temps and needing to manually turn the switch on or off.
In addition to the thermostat you will need a relay to properly wire it all together, like the Derale 16763.
When considering this cooler as a stand alone (bypassing the stock cooler), it is adequate enough to handle the needs of most applications. While is it typically recommended to utilize this cooler with the stock radiator cooler, it can certainly be used by itself.
