You will probably need a horizontally mounted cooler with fan.
Several members here have such a setup; perhaps one will be kind enough to post a picture.

Maybe take the bumper off and make some brackets to hold the cooler on all sides, I seen a pic of it somewhere on here, looked good, he had a fan on it.

If you are running a fan you can put it basically anywhere, even in the rear of the car.

A couple things, 1. I was thinking that with a stall and street driving it would get a little warm mounting it anywhere. 2. I was thinking of mounting it behind the intercooler. I didnt think at that location it would hinder the performance of the charge air. If anything it I think it would help out cooling with the fan. Thought about mounting the fan/cooler under the car, but its minimum cool air under there. Just dont wanna smoke my trans!

My only advice is not to mount it underneath , I did and eventually the trans overheated . had to swap it out on a road trip to a front mounted unit. I thought with the fan I could put it anywhere and I thought wrong. JOHN

Yea I think if it's mounted under the car it would be in danger of rocks hitting and damaging it. I'm gonna mount mine up front with a fan where my ac condenser was
