I don't want to be the one to say it... and somebody correct me if i'm wrong but:
you ect is within its normal, correctly operating range. the oil cooler's job is to, obviously cool the oil. It does this by matching the oil temp to the coolant temp. if your oil cooler is junk, the difference between the 2 will be 15 degrees or greater, and your right at 20.
If it is the oil cooler, i would suggest fixing asap. if your getting coolant into your oil, you could risk ruining your bearings in the lower end...
other signs that it failed would be oil in your coolant or coolant in your oil, but this has never happened to me so im not sure how obvious it would be.
its not a very difficult job, if you did your egr delete, you can do this, its directly below it
