You said that you have the external oil filter, if this is the BPD air cooled unit, then I really don't see any problem with you running the ford gold coolant. The reason that you don't want to run it stock is because it will stop up the stock oil cooler, you no longer have that and coolant no longer flows through the oil cooler. Also if you have the BPD unit then that NAPA filter that you have is fine.
I run ELC in mine with the BPD cooler only because its free and I dont want to have to worry about replacing it every 50k miles.
On the other hand if you have the other oil cooler relocation kit (can't remember the name) and coolant still flows through the cooler, then you need to get the gold out and the red in.
