Default power steering heat exchanger

I'm putting in a new radiator in the Mustang. This radiator has large ports on the end which lead to a tubular heat exchanger. I'm guessing the original intent of these ports was for ATF fluid cooling. I was thinking that maybe I should route my power steering fluid through this heat exchanger, but I am concerned that it may end up being a power steering fluid heater since I have no idea what sort of temps we see for power steering fluid at 7500 RPM.

Anyone try this in the past?

Default Do it

I did that and it worked great. Lots of guy have Power steering fluid issues, I never have. I ran amsoil ATF and the tranny cooler, for years, when that radiator died, I switched to a 2 pass, also an awesome thing, and added a dedicated PS cooler, that works great also.

But in any case, yes, cool the power steering fluid, and get the biggest pulley you can find at a junkyard on it.
