Would the 1LE benefit from an engine oil cooler?

Would the 1LE benefit from an engine oil cooler?

I've seen some where it looks like you replace the whole
radiator heat exchanger, is that always the case? If not is one design
better than the other?

I'm not very well versed in this stuff.

It comes with a factory engine oil cooler. If you plan on heavy racing I would say a bigger one could be better but if its going to be a daily driver or weekend cruiser the factory one should be good enough. All depends how you plan to use it.

The only real way to know if your specific vehicle, in your region (temps), with you driving will benefit from an oil cooler is to log you oil temps or at minimum get a gage

Too big a cooler and the oil will not get up to temp.....

In general a stock vehicle will be able to handle a open track event or HPDE....
