Well, this weekend I finally sat down and got it in, once I had the car up, I bolted it underneath the powersteering cooler and ran the lines to the return line..

After we got everything hooked up, there was a small leak at the return line where I put the copper part supplied by B&M , but it was fixed aftersome tinkering..

I would have pics.. BUT, my grandmother stole the camera when she went to FL.... :( sorry.

Just wanted to say thank you again to all those who gave me advice, put up with my annoyances, etc. The cooler works I think, and I felt it after I got out of the car.. That thing was pretty warm / hot for a bit.. but the lines definitely felt cooled somewhat.

I'm thinking my next mod will be the wheels or exhaust (true duals - 1 cat, not this pansy H-pipe upgrade I got).. It depends on if my grandparents will let me set up a payment plan with the wheels.. Ideas on how I should set it up (down payment and all)?

Anyways, thanks again guys, and I will have pics when I get the camera back!

Not really...the hardest part was to find the good location for the install and running one of the lines back up...other than that it was really easy...it took me a long time though cause i ran to the hardware store for some tubing, i got it, and i came back at the car and found out it was too small, so i went back and found out that they didnt have any bigger tubing so had to go to another harware store a lil farther away...but now im kinda happy its done and waiting to get enough courage to start the J-mod this summer...


here is a pic of the install




yea my finals are next week as well...but school is out after that so im happy...

Finals suck, and they should be banned in every country!

I had to do a lot of running around myself, not to mention that it took me 3 hours because of me taking my sweet time and I kept double checking my measurements for the bolt on / drilling.

Going to do the J-Mod huh??? I'm not that gutsy yet.. I'll go with the '02 GT MAF and Apten chip first :D

Best of luck and let me know how it goes.

Just did the J-mod and Tranny cooler in this weekend. Thats the good part..... The bad part is I was trying to do the TC and Driveshaft as well. I got everything except the TC. Exaust is still stock off the heaers and I couldn't break them free. Think I'll get some true duals and let the exaust shop break them off:D

The J-mod isn't to bad. the most difficult was the OD piston. Even if it takes a while to do you won't reget the time spent:thumbsup:

MB03- Good to see that everything went well. Now you can be rest assured that you're tranny is getting the cooling it needs. Now just do the J-mod. I know that would work well w/ the chip and 02 stuff. Def. get some pics. The j-mod isn't as hard as you may think, just time comsuming the first time. I just did my second j-mod for a friend on his 96 3.8L cougar at the 300hp setting, and managed a time of 4 hours. Mine took me like 7 with a break here and there. You're trans. will thank you:D

Well, right now I am focusing on new wheels, then probably true dual exhaust.. After all of that.. I MAY go for the J-Mod.
