Heat is great if you’re tanning or you want to grill a steak. But when it comes to automatic transmission fluid and engine oil, cooking is the last thing you want to do if preserving your driveline is a priority. That’s what makes the B&M Racing SuperCoolers must-have items for when the mercury starts to rise. Based on proven technology refined in a wide variety of motorsports competition, from road racing to monster trucks, the SuperCoolers are built with one thing in mind: Lower fluid temperatures.
Using a stacked plate design and oven-brazed all-aluminum construction for added strength with excellent heat dissipation, the SuperCoolers have an “LPD” or Low Pressure Drop feature includes two bypass channels near the fittings to allow fluid to flow freely. Controlled by viscosity, fluid is returned directly to the lube circuit through bypass openings in the stacked plate core. As the temperature increases, more ATF is directed through the core. This highly efficient design combines improved protection against lube system failure with the required levels of optimal heat transfer.
With the choice of 1 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch Thin-Line SuperCoolers, efficiency ratings ranging from 9,800 BTU to 29,200 BTU and black or polished finishes, B&M has created a diverse lineup of coolers with extensive mounting options for even the tightest of engine compartments while offering superior cooling characteristics to traditional tube-and-fin designs.
The B&M Racing SuperCooler comes with 1/2-inch NPT fittings that are easily adaptable to AN fittings while the Thin-Line’s 3/8-inch extended nipple fittings provide as much plumbing versatility as the mounting possibilities of the compact cores. Whichever fitting is chosen, both can be had in straight, 90-degree or 45-degree angles to ensure a clean, safe installation.
