Would love to see the steering cooler, and how do you keep your trans temps in check on the track, mine was over 300 degrees on 1 25 minute outing. thanks to the syncromesh for keeping the trans safe, immediatly changed the fluid out after that day.

I'll snap a photo of the power steering cooler for you this weekend; its a derale.

As for Trans temps, I run a plastic sign board material self made belly pan that runs the air down the tunnel to the trans instead of just down and lifting the car. I suppose you could use a ZL1 belly pan, but its more entertaining saying you made this crudely cut plastic pan that does the same thing? haha

A little description of what you're looking at. This is a photo through the lower grille because I'm too lazy to take anything off. The cooler sits behind my intercooler at an angle. The plastic ducts air to the radiator and i just secured it to the lower ducting tray.
