Larger? No.

You'd have to look into adding an aux oil cooler. Sandwich adapter, coil, hose...not too bad in $$. But those al fittings shoot up the cost. IIRC, when I priced out the parts years ago, $750-ish comes to mind.

And then there's the debate of running -10an vs -12an. Dmax volume needs fall into the -12 area, but the sandwich adapter is only -10.
However, if you port out the I.D. to match the -12, it works.

Thinner wall, yes. But it's fine to support the low oil psi of the Dmax, and lack of flow volume won't be a concern.

Here is some good info for ya on the oil coolers.
01-16 cooler is 10 plates, 17-19 is 14 plates, 2020 cooler is 20 plates and not a super costly upgrade

I think I'll be doing this on my LMM before summer. The last few years I've been having low oil pressure warnings when it's in the 90's and I come to a stop. I cleaned the stack last summer and that helped a bit. Doubling the oil cooler capacity ought to help more. For $173 it's worth a try.
