Power steering cooling

Getting ready to install a Stinger FMIC and have a technical question regarding the power steering fluid cooling loop.  I need to keep the A/C (Texas summers) so I have to relocate the PS cooling loop.  I thought about installing a radiator with built in transmission cooling and routing the PS fluid thru it.  Were I to do that, would I be cooling the fluid or heating it?   ie, under normal operation is the PS fluid cooler or hotter than the radiator coolant?

Get a power fluid to air power steering cooler on Ebay, install it in front of the radiator and be done with it.

That seems to be the consensus all across the internet.  Thanks for the quick response Jeff.

Not quite there yet, I'm doing an engine swap with a re-built engine and we will pull the old engine this coming week.  From the initial mock up though they don't seem to be a problem.  I'll take some photos when we start pulling and get the new engine in along with the FMIC installation.
