transmission coolers, what kind and size to get?

Hello I have a 1991 olds 88 that I am getting to run better now with the bent rim replaced........vibration to a minimum..........and would like to know what kind of tranny cooler will work best.......is too big not good either.......or just but a big *** one on there and it will not hurt anything...........these trannys in these cars are expensive to rebuild and I would like to make this tranny last......and heat in an automatic kills transmissions so what do you people think
