Default Trans Cooler size/capacity -NEVER MIND-I FOUND IT!

Sorry, guys.
I used the SEARCH and don't want to sift through 14 pages to find this tidbit!
( See? I told you I was impatient! )

While I'm in the spending mode and ready to install a bunch of parts, I need to know which size/capacity of auxiliary trans cooler to install and the best location/way to install it.
I'll be getting the 180F Thermostat as well...any good brand will do, correct?

Thanks.

EDITED - Hell, I'm up way too early; I'm on vacation; I found what I was looking for!
I'll get busy now!
:P

Got the thermostat.
Took a look at the '69 LeMans to see if I could rip-off the old tranny cooler, but, NAH.
I'll pony up and get a new one.
Just letting you guys know I'm listening and heeding advice as fast as I can.
I appreciate the knowledge base here.

If you want to, wait on the cooler until spring. The thermostat will be good to do now, but not the tranny cooler. Won't hurt, just don't really need it yet.

Well, I picked up a tranny cooler anyway! :P

I went to the OTHER ActionAuto store way up the same road and checked out the coolers there.
Holding up a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" standard typing paper in front of the stock cooler under the hood, I determined the smaller size would fit better.
It'* a DERALE unit # 13201 GVW 12,000. Oughtta work well enough. Paid $36.00 for it.
I've expressed my impatience of late, and this was the last thing to do or get on the vacation week.
Now I can go back to work next week and start dreaming up the next items to get!!!
