Transmissions won't be the same but at the very least the coolers offered in other countries should work. You may have to be the Guinea Pig on this one. Do some digging see if the parts diagrams for the transmissions and the coolers are out there on the net. I wouldn't expect being able to mount the cooler itself the same way but I would be extremely surprised if it wouldn't hook up to the transmission and function perfectly.

Thanks. My research shows Honda CVTs in Spain/New Zealand, I would presume other countries as well, have a short factory "loop" inlet/outlet hose on top of the CVT, in addition to the so-called "warmer". Unfortunately USA CVTs do not have that "loop" hose.

To attach the Honda stacked plate cooler to the CVT (other countries), the short "loop" hose is removed from the top of the CVT and new/longer rubber tranny fluid hoses, supplied with the new cooler, attach between the cooler and CVT. The "warmer" is never touched.

I would not be interested in the cooler PRL Motorsports sells, but would be interested in that part that replaces the factory "warmer" IF it also fit the CRV CVT. I might have to bite the bullet, presuming PRL would sell the part minus the cooler. Just think, I could be the 1st USA Gen 5 CRV with an auxiliary tranny cooler. LOL

I assume living in "West Texas desert" region, one's tranny fluid would get very hot. Extreme hot during hot summer days. For a "preventive" over heating upgrade, I can see how an optional aux ATF cooler install might be a good thing to do. In my north region, aux ATF coolers are rare on vehicles rated to only haul/tow 1,500 lbs. Especially since my region's summer temps max out in mid 70s. High 70s F is extreme hot summer day in my region....
