Thermostat paired with auto transmission cooler?

Would a thermostat be necessary if I purchase an auto transmission cooler? I have a cheaper dealer that I’m in communication with regarding the cooler as opposed to Stillen. I’m just wondering if I should worry about the transmission fluid being cooled at all times vs the thermostat activating the cooling at a certain temp.

I have a 2008, 5AT, with a trans cooler, with Level10's trans pan, no thermostat, no worries. Always want that fluid moving.

Ok will do without the thermostat then. I’ll be saving about $100 without thermostat vs the Stillen.

Yeah, I would always want fluid flowing and dont buy into the name brand BS. An oil/trans cooler is simply that, as long as it doesn't leak they're all the same.

Yea as far as I can see without the help of a friend, my only choices were either Stillen and Z1. Improved Racing was able to help me save money.

Not sure as I haven’t inspected it. What should I be looking for exactly?

Assuming you have the 5AT, you'll see trans fluid tubes going into, and out of, one of the radiator end tanks.
