I think in reality I really don't need a bigger cooler, its just un-nerving to see oil temp getting close to 120 in hot weather and just cruising....plus I'm fast running out of bits to change for the car

Didn't know about this will have to have a look. Both the VK and AR items seem to have compromises, an additional oil cooler in conjunction with the existing looks like a good option.
