Default Mishimoto Radiator for CVT

Hey all,

I've searched around, but I can't seems to find if the Mishimoto radiator is available for 2008 CVT Maximas.


All the ebay listings say they are for M/T and and an optional tranny cooler is available for $80.

Here's the listing:
Works with manual transmission, for automatic, optional tranny cooler is available for $80
http://www.ebay.com/itm/320738028995...ht_2366wt_1073

If I go with Mishimoto is there anything else I'll need for a 2008 CVT? Any other parts/manufacturer suggestions?

Update:

This guy on another forum says he installed a M/T Mishimoto rad in his Altima SE-R (CVT) and he did not need the tranny cooler. He doesnt really explain HOW he did it though...Legit??

Legit..NO they never made a Altima SE-R with CVT, I don't think you read his posts correctly I think he has a Sentra SE-R.

IIRC NO because CVT rads come with a port to cool the tranny so no tranny cooler needed.

So the problem is if you use the misimoto, it does not have this port so you need to weld one on. Welding to aluminum is difficult.

I know what you are saying, "well I can get the tranny cooler and the radiator", I guess you can I just don't know what you need to hook it all up lol

You need the manual mishimoto radiator and the tranny cooler. The trannt cooler gets hooked up to the lines for the CVT. You will have to ensure you have the appropriate fittings to hook to the lines.

So says latinmaxima, so it shall be!

Thanks for the info guys! At $240+shipping to Canada, the Mishimoto just wasn't worth it.

Went with a Spectra Radiator instead. New upper and lower hoses to complete the job.
