There should be at least 3/8 to 1/2 inch air gap. I have already cut away a lot of the grill to get the intercooler mounted. Any more and I will have to get rid of the grill altogether. The 3/8 to 1/2 inch air gap is the normal gap between radiators for effective cooling. Taking into consideration the higher stall speed converter, which generates more transmission heat, and the over heated transmission fluid and fried transmissions by others in my area with the same kind of blowers installed, gives me nightmares. I will start with the trans temp gauge first.
I have a Mag-Hyteh tranny pan with higher capacity, and am planning to change to Dextron VI. So maybe I am all right.
Going with a Transmission Temp Gauge is a Item you want to have when Towing, One route you could go and that is swapping out your Dash Cluster's with one from an Escalade or a Denail Dash Cluster, as they have the Transmission Temp Gauge already in the Dash Cluster.......and all of the 2000" and up Tahoe and Suburban's are All Ready Pre-wired from the Factory for the Trans. Temp Gauge.
