Default Oil cooler mounting position- Light side

Just looked through 20 pages of oil cooler discussion, has anyone mounted the cooler further back or on the passenger's side? Was thinking of how to get that weight off the heavy turbo side, and there's obviously way in front of the radiator, there's the steering rack, and there should be room behind the passenger's side of the bumper. Looking further back, the best I could think of was on the other side of the transmission.

Anyone find a way to mount a cooler more on the light side of the car?

As far as the right side of hte car goes, Passenger side, right behind the front bumper is of course a pretty popular location for track cars of all makes. I've been considering puting mine there, but wasn't sure how much less effective it makes the cooler, if at all, since it doesn't have direct airflow. I would imagine it is still plenty effective.
