Default 240sx Mishimoto radiator *5-speed only*

I bought the rad before I did my homework...there's no trans intercooler, and I'm still running an automatic. $120 if you happen to be in Indy, otherwise $130 shipped.

Why not just add a separate oil cooler for the trans? It will give better temps that way... B&M make good oil cooler for under $100...

Better solution would be a proper gearbox swap

Just run a separate trans fluid cooler. There are several write ups for this exact setup on the various 240 and nissan boards.

A good external cooler is more than enough to cool your fluid.

You can get coolers for alot cheaper then that. I got mine for $20 unused but missing hardwear locally. Plus having a internal trans cooler is really bad for trans fluid. Spend the money and plumb a external one.

I didn't know they made external coolers for the 240! I bought one new from O'Reillys this evening for $30. And I have everything I need for a manual swap except the free time...my new trans, clutch, etc is collecting dust in my garage.

Thanks guys!

It was a Heyden, I don't know the part number off hand but the guy said it would work for a 240sx

Sbould be fine but a little small. A fan would help. Honestly I would just be easy on the trans till you do the swap. No auto crossing. Then after it would make a nice PS cooler.

It should be better than what was built into the rad, right? And the mishimoto rad came with an electric fan that I'm gonna replace the mechanical fan with.
