We made up some brackets from scrap in Alans shop and mounted it in front of the condenser.
It fit just exactly in place.

I completely eliminated the stock cooling loop (probably heats more than anything =) )because my kit came with what is basically a t-stat for the trans. If the trans is cold it routes the fluid back to the trans, when it warms up it puts it through the cooler. With such a huge cooler it probably dosen't make a huge difference either way. I just wanted to take some heat away from the radiator.

it's called a thermal bypass valve

some have it integrated into the cooler, mine uses two large passages near the openings to allow the cooler (thicker) fluid to pass through one plate and bypass all the fins, when it gets warmer and thins out a bit, it utilizes the entire cooler
