I added it, I ordered the factory line for the cooler and the U-Bend line as well and threw in a Hayden cooler... I forget what the rating is, but I believe this one is just under RV... I think its 24000+ 5000 Lbs... The one on my 95 SE is the RV cooler... Like I said my Cooler are massive overkill, but due to the climate I live in I wasn't too worried about it being too cold..

Now I wish I could have kept the Boxes... Had all the stuff on there...

But again, the one on the 95 SE is the largest cooler I could get, the one on the LE is the one size smaller, but not buy much at all... Both do a great job

In case you still needed an answer for this q, Yes it is in front of the radiator there.

Can't believe that I missed that...

None of the 87-91 Bonnies can factory with a cooler... If it has or had one it was added.. But like lash said its located on the passenger side, this is the simplest place to put it as the tranny lines are on the passenger side of the radiator... The 87 models would be a diffrent story

Great pictures Jr that is a big one,the one I am looking at is about 69 bucks very thin ,yours looks thick and sturdy.Its about 10 - 12 " wide and about 8" long and comes with rubber like hoses and it only gives those white zip ties for mounting ( how did you mount yours) and 4 nipples.It looks pretty cheap compared to yours for the price.And thanks for the input from others .

Mine is mounted with black Zip ties ahead of the air conditioning condensor... The problem was that the cooler was about 15 " wide from the cooler pipe on one side to the other... The actually cooling fins from side to side are 12" So yeah its a rather large cooler... The length on it was engough to the point where I had to remove the hood support to get the cooler in there behind it... I actually have almost nothing at all for room between the cooler and the hood support.. For the first couple of months I was worried that I would puncture the cooler... But its just enough not to rub.. I think I have had this cooler for about 2 years now... The other one has 3 years I think... And I am such a freak about having it plumbed in right I ordered the factory GM lines

I think I paid $50-$55 US for that cooler... The one on my 95 SE was close to $70 iirc...
