As for the oil cooler, I have mine mounted on the passenger side right behind the battery tray, below the torsion housing, sitting flush with the bottom of the pan. This place gets excellent airflow and keeps the temps down. I would reccommend AGAINST putting a cooler on top of the tranny, there is no airflow there even with a fan. By the way, I have been running this setup for close to 30,000 miles without a cooling problem and for half of those miles, I was running around not realizing that my oil cooler fan wasn't hooked up!

Another rough rule of thumb for calculating the minimum required grill opening is to take the area of the radiator core less that off the fins and tubes. This equates to about 1/3 the surface area of the core. So for the above radiator you'd need an opening of at least 370 square centimeters.
