Question for zf6 guys on cooler plumbing

I'm swapping out my 5R with a zf6. Question is ...do you still use the cooler portion of the radiator for fluid cooling along with the transmission cooler mounted in front of the radiator or do you just use the stand alone row cooler in front of the radiator?
Looking for how they are setup from the factory not necessarily "well, here's how I'd do it".

Thanks in advance
Jeremy

my 2002 zf6 goes straight to the bottom of the radiator and back to trans. i guess thats enough cooling as i have never checked the temp of the fluid . good luck

I would think thats enough cooling, a stick isnt going to heat fluid like an auto would when you are doing things that necessitate additional cooling.

Mine has a small external cooler factory, not sure if the lines run through the bottom of the rad, but I'll check here shortly.
