There is a thread that Paul did to install a tranny cooler, and what he felt afterward. Let me see if I can dig it up. There are no shift kits, or other auto tranny you can put in. The TL tranny are the same as ours. The only thing I've read is that the auto trannys from the 06 and 07 models hold up a little better because they have all the corrections that the previous models had recalls for. The only other option we have is to send our tranny's to Dr. Evil. He has three stages, pending on what you are looking for. Street evil, pure evil, and maximum evil. I'll try to find his website as well.

I have not used them, though I know there are a few members, mostly 6th gen, that have a dr. evil tranny. The price depends on which level you want. I would email them, it is a little pricey.

none, email him and tell him its a 7th generation honda accord. He will give you more detail, you will end up pulling your tranny and shipping it to them.

Hey Guys

A tranny cooler is a good idea for Auto though I prefer to not do the cooler inline with the stock cooler. This way you can isolate the transmission fluid from the engine coolant so in theory you have better cooling of the tranny fluid since its not running next to the radiator. Another reason why I do it this way is that in most cases the stock transmission cooler in the radiator gets clogged while most aftermarket coolers are much more efficient and can be placed better.

The next thing you can do for an auto since too much heat is the enemy is a low temperature thermostat valve. This valve can be a $8 part at many stores that opens at a lower temperature allowing the coolant to flow into the engine sooner keeping the engine temperature lower. Since the engine sits on top of the tranny this is a bonus there that the transmission only has to deal with its own heat and less from the engine block. I wouldn't go lower than 180F valve since the engine does need to be in its normal operating temperature.

The tranny cooler I recommend having a pro set it up. But a thermostat valve can be done at home with basic tools. My ideal here about the valve could be wrong since I haven't tried on this car yet cause I've been really too lazy to pop the hood much.
