My transmission guy recommended I bypass my radiator all together when I installed my new 2004r. The reason, heat kills the transmission. If I'm running thru the radiator and the engine overheats then that passed directly to the trans fluid. I made a bracket and mounted it to the header panel in front of the rad so there is a 2" gap between the rad and the trans cooler. Seems kinda useless to still use the radiator it keep the trans fluid cool. So far, no problems in 50k miles.
