^ which would be countered by the cooler. Exhaust does a great got and warming the pan up. Think about warming up the car and waiting for the oil to warm up when your coolant is just as cold as the oil to start.
not if you have thermostat that starts to open once oil is warmed up
I used to run Spec C thermostat/oil cooler and I can tell you by experience it took longer for the oil to warm up, than when you have the stock oil cooler connected
your exhaust manifold doesn't get THAT hot when you are warming up the car, unless of course you are running ALS )

I think I'm gonna keep the OEM cooler loop. I dont see any down side. The external cooler would still be removing heat from the oil. Most of the time the oil will be hotter than the coolant anyway so they will both be helping cool things down.
I have never seen my water temp gauge move form normal on track(I know its not the most accurate).
