Xternal oil cooler

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has installed or found an external oil cooler?

Wanted to know if anyone else thought it would help the EOT significantly enough to be useful? I was thinking of using a filter relocate kit, or tap the pan and running a small pump to a cooler with an electric fan that is thermostatically controlled.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Truck already has a good engine oil cooler. I don't think there is a real need for more cooling.

I don't see it as a problem, but its one of those things I wonder about, if you were to keep the EOTs down farther, would with increase the life of the motor... I Think its in the same field as coolant filtering, or water separation on a stock motor....

I'm not sure that's really true though. I mean, as long as the oil temp is kept within it's normal range, is that what causes it to break-down? If you lowered it's temp by say, 100F, does that really make a significant difference to it's shedding it's lubricity over time?

I'm not sure, but i can't imagine it would be worth the effort when the oil/water cooler is already doing it's job...
