Review of Derale Transmission Coolers D12902

Today we're going to take a look at the Derale Dyna-Cool Tube Fin transmission cooler kit. Now this kit will improve functioning and overall performance of your transmission. Basically, the fluid will cool as it travels through this core by transferring the heat out to the fins and then the fins will provide the surface area that's necessary for the sufficient heat exchange to take place, allowing the heat pulled from the fluid in the tubes to dissipate in to the air. It's a very quick, easy and effective way to cool your transmission. Now this will extend the life of your transmission and prolong its period between necessary fluid changes and it'll also cut down on heat related failures. The other nice thing is, inside the tubes where the fluid is flowing, they do have a built in embossed turbulator and what that does is it'll agitate the fluid as it goes through those tubes, for more efficient cooling.

This is constructed of a durable, light weight aluminum, uses thermal conductive metal to provide excellent transfer of the heat. Includes everything shown here on the table and includes the cooler itself. Includes this high temperature olium 00:00:57 spec hose, with stainless steel clamps. Comes with the nylon mounting rods for installing it. A nice set of detailed instructions on how to install it and then comes with this nice Instadapt radiator adapter. What's nice about this, is this adapter will adapt your transmission line, so that you can connect the radiator to your transmission cooler quickly and easily, with no cutting or flaring of lines.

It will fit almost any vehicle that has the 5/16 inch diameter transmission line and as you can see on the fitting, it includes male and female threads. A few specs on this. The inlet and outlet on this, if we measure the distance between them, center to center is going to be right at 3 3/4 inches. The length on the hose itself is 48 inches. The overall dimension, from this end to the very far end is going to be right at 15 1/4 inches wide.

The height on it is right at 5 inches tall and the depth on it is 3/4 of an inch. Now the actual core itself, the width on that is going to be right at 12 1/4 inches. That should do it, for the review on the Derale Dyna-Cool Tube Fin transmission cooler kit.
