Somebody makes an upgraded trans cooler for the LBZ now. I just saw it for sale the other day, but I can't remember who makes it.

Ah yes, here we go.

Performance Transmission Cooler for LB7/LLY and LBZ/LMM [12406--] - $449.99 : Pacific Performance Engineering, Innovations in Diesel Performance



Excess heat is the #1 killer or transmissions, and for those who tow, race or simply run their diesel hard, properly cooling the transmission fluid is one of the most important things that you can do to increase the life of your transmission. PPE’s Performance Transmission Cooler is a bolt-on replacement that lowers the fluid temperatures an additional 20 - 30 degrees over the stock unit. When the mainline pressure is increased with a high performance transmission kit, additional heat is generated and we recommend a Performance Transmission Cooler in these applications.

Features:
- Increased surface area provides 60% more heat rejection
- Lowers temps 20-30 degrees over stock units
- Installation takes approx. 30 minutes.

Available for:
2001-03, 2003-05 and 2006-10 Duramax diesel engines.

1240600 2001-03 Cooler - connectors with Orange Clips
1240603 2003-05 Cooler - connectors with Purple Clips
1240620 2006-2010 Cooler - connectors same all years

cooler

Did you put any "rubber groments" or anything under the bottom L braket, I have read that some do for vibration. Also did you have to drill any holes for any of the bolts. Just curious, not real mechanical but I would like to reduce temps. Thanks Ron

I didn't use any rubber grommets. The only holes I remember drilling were with the self tapping screws when I raised the upper support arm and I opened the hole on the right side to relocate the temp sensor. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Looks like you were able to score an aftermarket cooler, I just flipped mine 180.
