Question type: Car Customization

I'm debating on whether
or not its worth putting a
oil cooler on my 95 3000
gt. I read reviews on the
item and it makes sense
to have a oil cooler
temperature at 80°
But not sure if this rule
apply for my car?
Benefits are obviously
keeping oil cooler. Less
wear on oil and engine.
Just like to hear some
thoughts on others who
have a cooler installed
and what you think about
it?
The one I'm looking at is
a 13 row comes with all
the parts nessesary for
install and sandwich
plate with temp at 80°.
Thanks for any
comments and opinions
are welcome.

Engine oil should run around 220 to 250 degrees. If it runs too cool water will never boil out of the system. Use an oil temperature gauge and a thermostatic control for the oil radiator.
