B&M 70266 Installation
The B&M 70266 SuperCooler comes as a stand alone cooler, meaning there is no installation kit with hardware. Because of this, installation will be dependent on each vehicle’s application. Since most people will commonly mount and install transmission coolers in front of the air conditioning condenser and radiator, the installation will need additional parts to accommodate this.
The biggest thing to consider when installing this cooler is where to mount it. Depending on your vehicle, the 1.5″ thickness may make installation a tight fit, so be sure to find a place that receives more than adequate air flow to the cooler.
If you have a more drag race application, you can mount this cooler remotely with a cooling fan to help provide enough air flow.

Despite the fact that this cooler does not include hardware or fittings to compete the installation, the cost of the cooler will allow you to purchase everything you need. We highly recommend utilizing either -6an or -8an lines with this cooler to get as much cooling capacity as possible while creating a very secure, leak free connection.
With a 4.4 star average rating on Amazon and 4.8 stars on Summit Racing, the 70266 is a very high quality transmission cooler that will do what you ask of it and then some. For the cost and performance, this is one of the best heavy duty transmission coolers on the market.
With all that being said, we’ve used this trans cooler on a street / strip car that often sees the racetrack and has a 3200 stall converter with lock up. The B&M 70266 does an amazing job at keeping temps below 170F when the converter is unlocked on hot days (90F). We give this cooler a 5/5 and it is rightfully deserving.
