With an after market transcooler you do not bypass the radiator cooler, it's is additional cooling aid. The return line goes to the radiator, then from the radiator to the larger aftermarket cooler and then back to the trans. If you bypassed the radiator cooler you would cook your transmission.
The oil to air cooler that comes standard on Automatic Commodores is commonly referred to as the "hairy pipe" and sits horizontally in front of the lower part of the radiator. This is the part you'd be replacing with a larger cooler.
Definitely a mod worth doing.

Definitely worth it, pretty easy to install yourself.

Most of the kits on ebay are the PWR ones and of good quality.
