make sure this is not done inline with the OEM flow of coolant. It should be a parallel circuit. you may want to either put a valve before and after exchanger orrrrrrr.. put a check valve after. This way if you turn coolant off completely hot coolant does not get pushed into the exchanger from the back side and sit there (unless you want it to)
