Oh, come on. Spend the $2 for metal hose clamps.

I meant to mount it. I think it actually comes with zip ties.

Nah, a coil is a coil. The Hayden 403 fits right from what I read when I had a 6th gen V6. In this case, bigger is better but you still have to mount the thing. Also, make sure that it gets a good breeze across it to improve it's efficiency.

I don't see where it's worth the expense. You don't tow or subject the tranny to high heat so why bother? The 6th gen auto trannies are know to be, uh, lacking in longevity so where is the gain for the money spent?

You have a valid point. In an auto where the tranny naturally runs quite hot it can be a lifesaver. I suppose it can't hurt and would increase the fluid capacity slightly. For very cold temperatures a bypass to the cooler might be in order.
