    Thumbs up JHM Automatic Transmission Cooler Kit for B6-B7 S4!!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey Guys!

    We are happy to Introduce the JHM Automatic Transmission Cooler Kit for the B6-B7 S4!!!



    JHM is pleased to bring you another performance upgrade for your B6-B7 S4 that is the result of our Supercharger Kit development and testing. This is the same upgraded Automatic Transmission Cooler Kit we have been running on Tiptronic B6-B7 S4s with the JHM Supercharger Kit since 2010.

    This is a great upgrade for your Automatic-Tiptronic B6-B7 S4. An automatic transmission and the components within it last longest when the temperature is kept as low as possible. The stock transmission cooler is integrated into the radiator where the transmission fluid will either be heated or cooled based on the temperature of the coolant in the radiator. On the B6-B7 S4, these coolant temperatures can range from 195 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (90 to 94 degrees Celsius) so your baseline operating temperature of the transmission fluid will be 200 degrees F. If you're driving the car harder, the transmission fluid temperatures will only increase from this baseline of 200 degrees. Our Automatic Transmission Cooler Kit separates the transmission cooler from the radiator and brings that baseline temperature way down. With a lower baseline temperature, the operating temperature of the transmission fluid is much cooler which will extend the life of the components in the transmission.

    Our kit replaces the factory automatic transmission fluid cooler lines with a performance transmission cooler fluid core and high-quality hosing. We include everything you need to mount the cooler and adapt the transmission fluid hosing to the stock fluid lines on your vehicle.

    PARTS INCLUDED
    - 1x Transmission Cooler Core
    - 1x Transmission Cooler Core Mounting Kit w/ 4x Ties
    - 1x Transmission Cooler Hose (extra supplied for a wide array of mounting locations)
    - 2x Hose Couplers, Barbed Brass
    - 6x Hose Clamps

    INSTALLATION NOTES:

    Bought this. Few things/questions:

    1.) I did not get the mounting hardware in my kit. All I got was the core, the hose, two hose barbs, and 6 hose clamps.

    2.) Mounting to the front of the radiator is unclear. Does it go OVER the PS cooler lines? Or NEXT to? Because next to doesn't fit, it hits the rubber splash guard on the side. If it sits over I would imagine there is not enough clearance (I don't have my bumper on yet) plus the mounts would need ~3/4" spacers to clear the PS lines.

    3.) My car-side trans cooler hose connections are different than in the .zip install photos. One is the same but the other is just a crimp fitting, not a fitting with nuts/flares.

    I think I got this installed last night. I ended up mounting it in front of the PS lines, and just zip-tying it to the radiator and PS cooler lines since I didn't get the mounting hardware. I snapped some install pics and also made a video (both are below).


    Some notes:
    1) Had to trim the splash shield between main radiator and headlight on the passenger side to fit the bottom hose. There was a natural "cutout" already that I fit the top line in.

    2) I didn't take any pics with the P. side aux radiator air shroud thing in place, but it actually still fits just against the new trans lines just fine.

    3) I will probably trim the lines down a bit later. I just used the supplied hose cut in half.

    4) For me in the b6, most is actually covered by the top of the bumper but there is about 1.5" exposed through the bottom grill. Not as much air flow over it as I would like but it won't really fit anywhere else. Can't go higher because the hood, can't go lower because the air temp sensor (i think that's what it is) would need relocated. Probably not too hard but I didn't want to mess with that bracket. If you moved that you could mount it so more would be showing through the bottom grill.

    5) You should only lose a little bit of fluid, I clamped the hoses under the car before doing anything so the only fluid lost would be that in the radiator and the parts of the lines you're removing. Maybe 1/4 - 1/2 liter.

    6) Since I didn't know where to actually install it exactly, I used some old wire to tie it in place where I thought it would go and then held the bumper back up to check clearances, etc. I had to do this a few times to find a good fitment.

    7) My install did not match the JHM install pics too much. Some variations:
    - I didn't need to save any cut ends of any OEM hoses
    - mine appears to be mounted much lower (they did mention the b6 needs lower mounting). I think the JHM pics are from a b7
    - they didn't mention trimming any of the vertical radiator splash shield
    - I did not trim anything off my actual radiator to get the old lines out
    - my lines were stuck on like nobody's business and did not just pop off



    A "diy" would probably be like:
    1) Remove bumper and radiator. (clamp hoses first before disconnecting)
    1a) Make a note which is the line going to the top and the bottom of the radiator so you can match that to the new one. (return vs supply)

    2) Remove old trans lines in the radiator. There are 3 brackets and the lines are free. They should just pop off. But mine were stuck on. I had to really get on them and get a screwdriver in there.

    3) I cut the lines coming FROM the trans (still under the car) right at the metal fittings.

    4) Use the 2 hose barbs and 4 hose clamps supplied to connected the new hose from the kit.

    5) Run the lines to the new rad and clamp them on.

    6) Mock up where the new rad will sit. See my note 6 above.

    7) Trim the splash guard for the lower line. I just help the rad in place and marked it with a marker then cut out a 3/4" groove. If I was to do it again I would actually cut a hole and just a slit leading to the hole to keep a better seal.

    8) Mount the new radiator with hardware if you get it or just some long zip ties. I mounted it about 1/2" above the sensor on the front of the radiator and the drivers side edge just covering the passenger side vertical section of the PS lines.

    Great job there... IMHO every Auto needs a great cooler like this, surprising how it helps the tranny to be more efficient and last longer

    Any ideas if this would work well on a B5 S4 Tip? It looks like it would install pretty much the same. If hose clamps are good enough to hold the hoses onto those barbs without leaking, I would think it should work well for a B5. Thoughts?

    Haven't tried it on a B5, but it is possible!
