Using alumi bar on the front, I actually never weighed the old bar, but by feel I'd have to say the new one weighs about half the weight the old bar.

Slightly on topic, not sure if I already asked this but what size are the oil and tranny oil lines that go from engine/tranny to the oil cooler and tranny cooler, I went to take mine off and they litterally crumbled as I pulled them off.

For some reason I have it in my head that those hoses are around 10mm, but I haven't worked with them more than once; So don't go off of my memory. I'd measure the nipple.

It depends entirely on the application... is this for coolant lines? IC piping? What? Also, what size to what size?

Alright its for the tranny cooler line, the connection on the tranny cooler is a female 1/2 in. NPT fitting, I either need to buy an adapter to attach the stock transmission oil line to the tranny cooler, or figure out what size the connection is at the transmission and buy a new hose and connections for both ends. So what type is the connection that connects to the tranny? Also... would an 8 -AN steel braided hose work for the tranny cooler lines?

Read that the thread size for the end that connects to the transmission is 12mm, can anyone confirm? Is that for the return and sending line from the transmission and cooler? Will I need 2 of whatever connector? Also can someone let me know if thats a female or male connection... and what type? This is pretty much the last bit of info I need to start this project. Also anyone with pictures of these connection points please post, I've seen pictures from only 1 person and they posted over a year ago on this same topic, just need to confirm a few things that were never confirmed in their posts.

Slightly off topic what diameter silicone hose should be used to join the throttle body and IC 3000 pipe together? mine is wearing

Any reference on torque specs for an adapter going into the ATF spot on the transmission? I'll check back in the morning for replies to my last 2 posts. I totally can't wait to start! Thanks for the help so far!

Is there a diagram that shows where the stock transmission cooler lines run? I want to remove those if possible and put in complete custom lines.

i was reading though this and wondering if it would be worth using a aftermarket a/t cooler or is the oem good enough?
where i live it can get pretty hot in the summer, i thought there might be alot of heat with the a/c on when stuck in slow traffic

It won't hurt, but I don't see the point in going to all the trouble of custom plumbing and mounting if you're not also replacing the radiator. In that case I'd just get the whole thing thoroughly flushed at a rad shop.
