Adding ATF after cooler install

Im installing a transmission cooler this week for my 42lre transmission. Question is...im pretty certain i'll need to add more fluid since some of the fluid will be stored in the cooler. Do i just add the fluid in the fill hole of the transmission or can i add it slowly through the dipstick? If i add it to the fill hole i dont think i can get a quart in there since i just put the correct amount of atf when i did my recent fluid change.

Make sure you let the engine idle in neutral for a while then fill it while its still on in neutral. Helps it all circulate
