I did not intend for this to an aux cooler vs oil cooler discussion. Both have had positive results. I am currently working on a project that will address both. The other mods like tranny coolers, cai's, turbo MP's, tuning, deleted cats etc will improve longevity, driveability and may help coolant temps and oil temps some but they have nowhere near the effect that direct cooling on either fliud.
You are correct Mtl in that oil and coolant temps are not the only issues to be addressed. They are just the most in your face issues at first.
Joe, can't wait to see what you come up with for addressing both oil and coolant solutions.
