The three day event is $500. From what I can gather, an installed oil cooler retrofit would be a couple grand or so. Also, I'm hesitant to spend money on one since it doesn't have an impact on my normal driving, I don't plan on doing much in the way of tracking the car, and I'm probably only holding onto it for another year or two.

Cool, sounds like it's worth a shot. Thanks.
