BlastedM3, What vehicle was if for?

I was considering installing it myself but the, "exhaust must be temporarily removed" portion of the instructions has me weighing my options. I hate getting into a job like this then stripping a bolt or tearing a gasket and it becomes a big hassle.

Most of my towing is a utility trailer, 2 seadoos, or 2 snowmobiles & I know a tranny cooler isn't really necessary for those. However, on occasion I plan to tow a 21' boat, a 14' enclosed trailer or a 17' travel trailer, all of which hover around the van's capacity of 3000#. I figure for $300-$500 an ATF cooler is good insurance, especially if I'm going a good distance with the travel trailer. The 14' and 17' both have brakes and it's safer to utilize them.
