1)I am gonna mount it on the condesor like svxfilles suggested.
2)Left or right side?
3)In front of condensor or back?
4)How can i drain most of fluid?
5)Is the subaru hp fluid considered best stuff to use?
6)How many quarts do i need?
7)What size hose as i am planning on replacing the hose also.
1) I like this installation.
2) I mount them dead center.
3)Between the condenser and the radiator.
4)When you disconnect the stock hoses drip happens...
5)I like/love BG Products ATF!
6)Up to twelve quarts if you completeley drain it.
7)3/8" ATF line.

Make sure that the lines are not going to get pinched/chaffed/abraded on the exposed mounting bolts on the drivers side!

Re: transmission cooling questions

One thing to remember: position the cooler outlet so that the system will bleed itself.

So either both inlet and outlet pointing up or sideways so that the cooler inlet is at the bottom.

Kind regards,
