The only time you should bypass the core in the radiator is if you've ever had a trans failure that sent debris, chunks, and snot through your system. That'* why I'm bypassed. HOWEVER, I had planned to cover part of my monstrous trans cooler in the winter, and never needed to.

I ran an Oregon winter just fine.

Bingo, this is the way to do it. No problems, no overcooling.
