I know this is an idiotic question, but my brain, and my body, are pretty much done for the day and I have to get this done. I had to re-install my old stock rad. temp. so my wife can get to work tomorrow, and it has the two fittings open that the tranny lines are supposed to screw into. I have a B&m cooler, so both lines bypass the rad. anyway. I need to make sure that there will be no issue w/ just using the rad. for cooling, and having those 2 holes open. I'm pretty sure they're separate, but like I said, my brain quit about 2 hours ago, and I'm running on Mtn. Dew right now. Just a simple yes or no would be cool.

if she drives the car in winter or cold, then you will want to run the lines in series with that heat exhanger tank to help warm the fluid up.

Thanks guys. I just left them open. No issues yet besides a leaky rad. I will have to just block the tranny cooler off during the winter so it will warm up, because a new Cobra rad. will be going back in to replace the busted one from the deer. Just gotta wait for the insurance $$. Appreciate it.

Bird keeps on running. Took it out last night after the fill and still gets a 2nd chirp.:D

for the winter if you have an external tranny cooler, and youll ahve the 03 radiator on, just let the car warm up for around 10-15 minutes, it should be warm enough to start driving, then itll be fine, i ran my external cooler through the stock radaitor tranny cooler, so in the winter itll warm up better

Thanks for the tip on the warm-up. I'll do that. I really dont feel like putting a stock rad. back in every winter. It can wait the 10 min.
