Upgrades for the (rather small) stock oil cooler come from Evolution Racewerks for example. IMO that is sufficient as a first step and easier for installation than adding another oil cooler. The latter is also feasible, AR Design for example offer this solution where the second oil cooler is located in front of the radiator.

Like enrita, I'm running both an additional oil cooler and an upgraded stock core. Ideal if you have modified your car heavily and want to do road racing regularly.

thanks guys! would you say this additional AR oil cooler is something which can be DIY or is it recommended to get it done at a shop?
