The Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13105 is the largest cooler that we have that will fit the 2013 GMC Yukon XL 6.0L V8 Engine.This cooler will make for an awesome upgrade because it has built-in turbulators that agitate fluid fora better efficient cooling. It measures 16-5/8" wide x 12-5/8" tall x 3/4" deep.

The ideal location for a transmission cooler is where it can get the maximum airflow in from of the AC condenser. If there isn't room there the next best location is between the condenser and the radiator and the last place is behind the radiator. The cooler installs on the transmission return line.

Installation of this product requires the Derale Snap-In Radiator Adapter Fitting for GM # D13035.

I'm assuming that I will leave my factory Trans Cooler installed and add the D13035?

Expert Reply:

Yes, when adding a cooler it will work as a supplement to the factory cooler. The flow of the fluid will go from the transmission, to the factory cooler, from the factory cooler to the aftermarket cooler, and from the aftermarket cooler back to the transmission. This is the most efficient path and offers the most cooling.
