It's a long story, but this one's off a late model Jaguar. It's a huge sucker, good enough for a 500hp V8.
I put the Ford Racing 90degree adapter on the stock filter mount, then I had to have a little custom fabrication done to the threaded post that mounts the cooler to the 90 deg adapter.
I'm also running a larger Jaguar filter, so with the 2.3L pan and BSD the engine holds about 6 qts of oil now with this setup.
The cooler itself is about 2x the size of what you might see on an Escape or Explorer.
For the connection to the cooling system, I just plumbed it in series with the heater core. Using some elbows and straight heater hose etc, I cut into the heater hose that goes the long way around to the front of the engine.
When I get around to it, I'll take some pics and throw them on this thread.
