The 7.3L Power Stroke engines are widely known as tough, dependable workhorses. The weak link in this powertrain tends to be the transmission. A transmission cannot perform or last when fluid temperatures run high. The factory coolers are a ridiculously small. Common practice in the market is to replace the factory cooler with the later 6.0L model cooler. They will just about bolt into place and only require adapting the hose sizes. One better than this is to install a Mishimoto 6.0L trans cooler. The sheer size and lifetime warranty cannot compare to the stock unit.
As you can see there is a huge difference. Mishimoto offers a lifetime warranty on all their products. This truck would run up to 247 F transmission oil temps while towing heavy. Now they are kept well below 200 F. The longevity of the transmission is greatly extended and reliability is improved.
