When my trans went out ( after the 3rd engine) at 680ish wheel...we rebuild it and valvebody went out...then the stock TC took everything out again..never went to strip once rebuilt...Ok, I have yet to read this entire post, but here is my short story..
I built a 2020 Mustang ecoboost auto for road racing. I chose the auto; I was looking for a transmission that would allow me to stay in boost all the time vs shifting a manual tranny and falling out of boost all the time. I knew it could have heat issues, but I figured with only 350hp ecoboost, it would be fine.
Got on track last year, everything was fine at first but then it started overheating and acting super weird, slipping, missing gears, etc. We also had some fluid coming out of what we think is the vent hole. The problem started happening at lower and lower temps.
We opened the transmission over the winter and everything looked fine (not sure the tech was qualified to REALLY inspect everything), and we changed the clutches to the Raybestos HD ones just in case they were the problem, but how could they be with my lever of power?!
At the same time, I upgraded the cooling (heat exchanger, large PPE oil pan, radiator ducting, etc). Went back on track and the heat thing seems to be under control, never got above 103c. But now it does the same thing at even lower temps, under 100c (212f).
I am suspecting the TC is now the problem. Is it possible it overheated and now acts up at even lower temps? Could an upgraded TC help me? Like Circle D or Suncoast... I want to be able to run 1hr races with no problem.
Should I just give up and go manual?! That would be sad...
I was looking at that, and yes the website says 15-19 model years. I have not tried it yet, but looks to be decently sized.has anyone tried this? Does it fit 2018+ 10r80 mustang?
C&R Auto Trans Cooler Mustang GT 2015-2016
It is a direct fit reusing all the existing lines, but seems a bit bigger. I think it sits almost flush with the top of the radiator, instead of the stock unit that ends 4-5" below that. So it takes up some unused real estate above.That C&R looks very similar to the OEM...
Mmm. I don't know.It is a direct fit reusing all the existing lines, but seems a bit bigger. I think it sits almost flush with the top of the radiator, instead of the stock unit that ends 4-5" below that. So it takes up some unused real estate above.
Why do you say it's mounted in front of the AC? The picture above (albeit not mine, but the only one I could find) shows that the brick mounts directly to the radiator using the same bolt hole as the original cooler. And on the other end, there's that little ear that goes into the slot built into the radiator?Mmm. I don't know.
Btw. It is mou ted in from of the AC so not really a plug and play.
