Re: S60R auto trans cooler kit ? (ilalocal1922)

Sounds like a great idea. I wonder how it "improves 1-2 and 2-3 shifts?

Didn't get the parts from VIVA - but it's the same stuff: <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=38634" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=38634</A><p>I don't get the "upshift flare" nearly as much as I did, but it still happens.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

I have the same kit sitting right here, just waiting for the time to install it.<br>I sourced all the parts long before Viva sold it as a kit. I should be installing it in a few weeks.

Re: S60R auto trans cooler kit ? (Our R)

is the price of the kit better than doing it on your own. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Some of the parts can not be purchased in the US. So it makes it a bit hard to order. The kit price is very good.

I'd like to get it especially for the Cali summers. Unfortunately, its just not cost effective right now <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

My shift flares were the first time I mentioned it at service, hasn't happened since (approx 20,000 km ago) <p>Please forgive my stupidity, but is this really needed/any improvement in the drivability of the R GTs from a trans cooler?

I wouldn't think its really that noticeable of a performance increase but I bet it does allow better operation of the GT tranny.

Okay I wonder if Borton can get this any cheaper than Viva?<p>Also, which to choose, R Kelly's air intake or Auto TransCooler Kit or the Brake Cooling kits?
