100% aluminum construction and use stamped plates sandwiched together to create one of the most efficient oil cooling devices available. Not only does this unique design provide for maximized cooling through more efficient heat dissipation but it also provides a much sturdier cooler which is practically impervious to flying rocks or other debris. The Super-Coolers intended for automatic transmission fluid also offer an additional feature known as “Low Pressure Drop”. The coolers assembled with hose barb ends include a unique bypass feature allowing a controlled amount of ATF to bypass the stacked plate core when the fluid is cold. This is beneficial in cold climate areas to guard against lube system failure. Controlled by viscosity, fluid is returned directly to the lube circuit through bypass openings in the stacked plate core. As the temperature increases, more ATF is directed through the core. This highly efficient design combines improved protection against lube system failure with the required levels of optimal heat transfer.

You can run the 13,000 BTU 11" unit inline with the stock unit or replace it. The unit itself is a stack style unit with angled fins in the core for more cooling.

The big boy unit is 13-1/2"x9"x3-1/2" with 9-1/2" diameter SPAL fan and has a 175° thermostat in it to kick the fan on and you can run this in parallel with the stock unit up front or you can eliminate the up front unit and use the extra space for a tandem larger HX to run in parallel with the larger lower grill HX units for the ultimate in cooling. Mine is going on the spare tire well in the rear.

I've used both of these type units before on cars with higher stall speed torque converters - and was very happy. If you have a higher stall speed converter and are in a lot of city traffic you want the unit with the fan as all that start stop with the higher stall converter creates a lot of heat with no air to move it out (at least where I had to mount). Never had any problems in very cold weather with over-cooling of the fluid, so I presume the bypass works. Just my experience.
