Wondering how much cooling it would provide as it don't look very big!
Read about using coolers from JC Whitney etc. but at 11" X 6" X 3/4" might be a mission to fit in.
Interesting discussion maybe?
I added an oil cooler, which was a generic aftermarket unit. There are several posts about how and where I added it starting around post #146 (page 10) in my build thread. There is also a bit of discussion about how useful it is; who could benefit from one; who maybe doesn't need one.

Hope it helps a little.
