I highly recommend Mike's transmission cooler.
A cheep version of a transmission cooler was installed in an 05 SSR I had perviously owned.
It was the type that is mounted on the A/C condenser and the radiator with plastic ties.
It was not mounted correctly, vibrated and wore a hole in the A/C condenser.
I had to replace the A/C condenser - not cheep!
Mike's transmission cooler is custom fit to the SSR and is mounted to the metal bars in front of the A/C condenser/radiator.
You may need to move the outside temperature sensor to the bottom left vent opening to get correct readings

Important on how you run the lines. If you are going through the factory cooler still, route it then into the optional cooler then back into the transmission.

Transmission Cooling

A simple and effective option (other than installing a separate cooler) that works well for street use is adding a deep finned aluminum transmission pan. The aluminum dissipates heat better than steel, the fins also improve heat transfer, and the extra 2-3 quarts in fluid capacity aid in keeping transmission fluid temperature down. I use a PML Part Number 9427 (https://www.yourcovers.com/transmission_pans.html), which I believe is similar to the one of the pans offered by Simple Engineering.

It is, in fact, the same pan.

I installed Mike's cooler a number of years ago. Plug and play. It has worked well.
