45,000 BTU Tru-Cool tranny cooler VS. 6.0 tranny cooler. Which one?

I am looking to install a aftermarket transmission cooler on my 01 7.3 PSD. After reading several posts in the forum, there seems to be a lot of people using the 6.0 tranny cooler. My tranny shop recomends the largest Tru-cool tranny cooler (Tru-Cool MAX W/external thermal bypass). This unit has a 40,000 GVW rating and a 45,000 BTU rating.

I hunt and off road and pull a trailer (up steep grades for hunting) and DO NOT want any transmission problems due to heat.

Which unit would be the better solution to overheating tranny problems?

Tru-Cool MAX or the 6.0 tranny cooler?

Thanks

Kess

I got a BTS tranny and Brian put a 6.0 cooler in mine and he builds
the best tranny going. So if it is good enough for Brian and he know trannys
better than any one out there I would go with a 6.0

The 6.0 cooler is a Tru-Cool cooler. It is the same style cooler as the Tru Cool MAX but it is twice as big.
