doing DA t-rd's V6 transmission cooler install








almost have everything ordered or delivered:

1. B&M 70264 transmission cooler - in pic

2. 1 qt. of OEM Honda DW-1 transmission fluid
already got a case


Tools needed:

3. got these 3 already
- 17mm, 3/8" drive socket
- 3/8" drive ratcheting wrench
- 3/8" drive extension, at least 1 foot

- Straight + 90 degree + 45 degree needle nose pliers + 3/8" hose removal pliers

these aren't a everyday tool for me nor used often so i picked all 3 at Harbor Freight for around $20

4. 3/8" ABA hose clamps - in pic

5. Silicone spray - in pic

6. - 3/8" HVAC foam tubing - in pic

7. - bunch of medium length zip ties - if you look in the 3rd picture, i live in CO which has true 4 seasons and overtime, Zip Ties tend to become brittle and break...i'm going to try these velcro cable ties and will report back

8. Astro 9409A remote hose clamp pliers - i'm glad i asked t-rd about this tool because its like $45 bucks and what he said during his install, it seems necessary to make Install a lot easier

9. Additional 5 feet of 3/8" Goodyear transmission fluid hose. I bought 5' from Advanced Auto for about $10: this is my biggest problem and if anyone can help with alternative...for some reason i can only find it sold by 25 ft. and cheapest like $50...anything else i could use that would be as good as goodyear?

10. Permatex blue loctite - going to hold off on this for now


any help or suggestions for an alternative to Part 9 is appreciated

this is what I put on my car:

mounted it right to to bottom of the battery tray. I think I ordered hose from Summit maybe, can't recall.
When buying from Advance Auto, if you google "discount codes" and order online to pick up in store, you can usually get 30% off...
I could be wrong, but that small stock "cooler" will also help warm the fluid in cold weather with the coolant running thru it. That's why I went with the small heat sink. Either way,I guess it can't hurt to increase the amount of fluid in the transmission.

hm, that one looks much more compact...thanks for posting

i may have to go with your style due to space behind the Front Bumper and lighting
