Hey guys,

I'm looking to do some fluid cooling upgrades on the 1995 LT1 Auto.
Since I think I'll upgrade all cooling for engine oil/coolant/trans (this is my DD in California with plenty of stop-and-go), I'm thinking of a doing the (1) Dewitt with EOC and fans (http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?parta~dyndetail~Z5Z5Z50000050f~Z5Z5Z5ABYBB~P919.00~~~~S2NR038NIB76173138335a~Z5Z5Z5~Z5Z5Z50000050F) and (2) B&M trans cooler(http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=BMM-70268&N=700+115&autoview=sku).

Questions:
1) What are you guys running?
2) What other radiators and coolers do you recommend?
3) Will the B&M fit in the engine bay with the new radiator?

160* is a good start. Fan switch, Royal purple tranny fluid,shift kit.
Thanks for the response R3DLT1. I have lots of RP Max ATF and the TransGo HD2 on its way ready for installation. :thumbsup:

Is the 160* good for our cars? I had a 2001 Mustang before my LT1, and people who switched to 160* reported problems when certain fluids don't reach optimal operating temperatures around 195*. I know I want to make the cooling system robust enough to cap the max temperature under 200, but not necessarily start cooling at 160* unless there are no reported problems with the 160*.

The 160* is good. Your actuall operating temp is going to be around 180*.
