All you really need to do is add the cooler core in series with the factory transmission cooler out by the radiator.

If you already have the water-to-oil cooler (#4 in diagram) and you want to replace it with the one from the kit just connect the hoses the same way.
It comes factory with 4 ports, not 2 ports like the Nissan's do.

If you don't already have the water-to-oil cooler and instead have the integrated by-pass valve plate (below) then you must leave it that way. Don't install the water-to-oil cooler.

They honestly don't help with cooling much anyway.

I'm going to try to integrate the water 2 oil cooler inlets and Outlets to the Core hoses because the whole unit is made of out of aluminum it'll probably help keep it cool

Your call, but if you don't already have it, it isn't necessary to add it and won't help with cooling.

Make sure that you don't have your CVT overfilled. Even a few drops too many will make the CVT overheat. Maybe try running a few mm below where the chart says.
