Thanks, I was thinking that was the obvious place, should I bypass the radiator and just run the kooler, don't live in cold climates

keep the radiator pass-through.

So put the cooler inline after the rad. Or before?

i piped mine in before the radiator to reduce trans fluid heatsoak into the coolant (trans fluid can get hotter than coolant).

you can also pipe it after the radiator, and if you don't live in a cold climate that may work great for you. piping it after the radiator can actually cool it too much if you live in a cold climate.

some people get fancy and actually run both, one before and one after, with thermostats, fans, and temp sensors to keep fluid within a specific temp range throughout a variety of climate changes.
