take it off the condenser and use some of the bracketry holes and mount it just behind the power steering cooler.

my 3.8 v6 has always done this, that fluid you speak of is water and thats where it comes out of the system and evoporates on the cat, I just learned to live with it, I don't have any mods done to my v6 at all, its completely stock, but if your 4.6 started doing this after the tranny cooler was installed and didn't do it before than just locate it somewhere else, further away from the condenser, also my v6 only does this when the a/c is on for a long period of time... which is always, I never turn my a/c off, I live in vegas and want to feel like I've stepped into antarctica when I get in my car.

If your A/C wasn't selected to be on, the only thing I can think of is that the compressor is still running for some reason. That's the only logical thing I can think of as to why there would be condensation on the lines and liquid running out of the evaporator case. The liquid you speak of dripping onto the cats is as Chris_Murder said. It drains from the evaporator case inside the car and is completely normal. I see no connection to heat from the tranny cooler causing water in the evaporator case. Even if you don't turn on your A/C, check to see if it runs.

The #4 fuse inside the car (10A) is for the A/C clutch. Pull that and it won't come on no matter what.

I installed a tranny cooler right flush against my condenser and have experienced nothing light what you are. In thinking about it I can't see how heating up the condenser could cause the refrigerant to move in the system enough to cause its cooling effect. It takes a lot of energy and movement of the gas by the compressor to do that.

Ive had a tranny cooler on my car mounted to the condensor for around 100k miles. I get the drip like you do but only when the AC is running. No other problems so far.

Hayden 679's are easy to mount. Remove the hood hold down latch and install it under there. Make sure you have clearance to reinstall the latch. 2 self tapping screw will hold it to the core support just fine. You will probably have to remove the little plastic piece that goes into the hood latch thing-a-ma-bob, but when you see it it's not a problem.
