The 722.6 trans oil looks the same as Dexron, red.
I am unsure about the cooler question. If it is really driven hard, then I suppose an extra cooler may be in order, your asking the wrong guy is the long and short of it.

This is the fitting that goes onto the the hard line coming out of the transmission.

I am not really sure I understand how the additional tranny cooler works, coud someone please explain?
I drive my C280 hard and think I might benefit from one of these, especially them being so cheap. Though I drive hard, and change fluid every 25-30k miles, I have never burnt the trans fluid.
Thanks for the info.

The aftermarket tranny cooler is an additional mini-radiator for your tranny fluid. Its purpose is to provide additional cooling to the tranny to maintain lower temps.

I am sure that the trans cooler costs much more than $15.

I think what c36amg88 was referring to as being $16 was the cost of the fitting, not the cooler.

722.6 tranny cooler

Changing your trany at such interval is nice way to keep you car well maintained.

Your trany fluid should be at an optimal operating temperature. If the trany fluid is below or above its optimal temperature then less protection is provided. This is why, it is always a good thing to let you car warm up before you stomp on the LT1’s or your SVT Cobra on the freeways.

Sometimes when driven hard for long periods of time (on a track course) you trany fluid will overheat and not provide protection (just like your engine oil). Your car has a factory trany oil cooler already. But an additional one will provide extra cooling to keep it within “optimal operating temperature”.

The $16 fitting is only 1 of 4 that was used, plus the steal braded lines, the oil cooler its self, and brackets came just a little below $300. Not including self-labor.
