As you may or may not know they do not come with trans coolers.I've done a search and found nothing. Will my 24,000 gvwr trans cooler be enough?

Yes, your 24,000 gvwr will be fine. Even in the super humid and hot GA heat with the AC on MAX I see TOT's of 140-160 now that the rad cooler is out of the mix but I do have a B&M deep pan also that aids in the cooling as well. My ECT's range from 180-195 and again this is in 90+ degree weather with a lunatic at the wheel so I'd say the Cobra rad is doing a very nice job.

I've been running the Cobra Rad for over a month here in hot/humid S. Florida and my engine is running noticably cooler on the street , the highway an at the track. It's a good mod. Thanks again to Big Scott for posting it....

I've got a 28,000 B&M cooler (probably overkill) with '96 pan, but 24,000'll be fine...

Oh it will warm up plenty fast. But then again on the back of the Mercon V bottle it plainly says 'Do not freeze'. I don't know how cold it has to get to freeze but when your car is running down the road it will definately stay above freezing.

what mercon v are you using?
mine is castrol mercon v and didn't remember reading something about do not freeze?
here in michigan are about to snow soon and the temperature will sometimes drop to -10 or -20. if that so should i block partial of the cooler fin off by board?

I havn't noticed any issues with the temps in the high 20's low 30's here, but thats about as cold as I'll drive it in before it goes to bed for the winter.
