Just run it as it is untill it shows signs of great wear, add an extra cooler, good synthetic fluid, a high capacity pan is cheap insurance.

No its not its a big waste of $$ and won't do anything except lighten your wallett. NEVER add a extra cooler that just reduces fluid flow. The 6.0 cooler is the best cooler you can buy.
