Tranny Cooler Options

What have you guys done?

I have the 6L50 in my car.

Does GM offer a factory option?

How much can I expect to pay my dealer for install?

Just got off the phone with my dealer. They will not install an aftermarket cooler "because most of them come with clamp style fittings that they do not recommend."

They also said that there is a factory option for V8's but that it wont fit a V6... is this true? I thought that some of the V8 Camaros came with the 6L50 as well?

Any insight/opinions are appreciated!

V8s are 6L80 or 6L90 (ZL1)

Anyone know of a direct fit cooler for the 6L50 trans?

Hoping to avoid a generic one if possible. Looking for one with beefy lines and connections as opposed to just clamp style connections that can blow off. Cant risk that happening.

Thoughts? Opinions?

No direct fit cooler for the 6L50. I use 3/8th Hardline to -6 AN flare fittings on the transmission lines, bypass the stock cooler and use a B&M Cooler. I run very high pressures on my transmission to get it to shift in 30 milliseconds, no lines have came off yet.

Just bought the full kit recommended by MagnumForceGB.

Ordered the cooler ($81) and fluid off eBay ($21) both shipped prices.

And purchased the highest quality DOT approved line and fittings from Roanoke Hose & Fittings ($151).

Im $253 into this project and going to install it at my dads shop (RocCityAuto.com) in Rochester, NY when I head home in July.
