Recommended Transmission Cooler for a 2011 Honda Odyssey
I am wanting to install a transmission cooler on a 2011 honda odyssey touring elite to extend the transmission as much as possible. I wont be towing anything beyond loading the inside of the van. But I make long trips between Phoenix and Denver. I dont want the trans failing because of overheating or overcooling. Phoenix gets to 130F, Denver gets to -15F. I was looking at: Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class II - Efficient Item # D13501 Would this mount like the OEM trans cooler? Would this fit the bill? Or do you have another recommendations? Thank you!

The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler, # D13501, that you referenced will work well on your 2011 Honda Odyssey. The Derale cooler is designed to be a supplemental cooler that will work with your factory OEM transmission cooler.
The cooler will be mounted ideally at the front of the radiator for the most efficient operation. However, not all applications will allow you to mount the cooler in this position. The instructions shows a diagram where the 4 best locations to install this cooler will be located. Since aftermarket transmission coolers are universal in where the units will be located, there is no precise location to mount this cooler on your Odyssey.
