would it matter if it was between the block and filter or filter and block?

What size oil coolers are u guys using?

go after the filter if possible, it "might" flow better but doesn't really matter. Just get a sammich plate.

well this new motor came with a relocation kit, so I would rather plumb in unlike with that than getting a samewhich plate. My only thought is getting oil up to temp since there will always be flow no matter what temp the oil is.

Build a blanket for the oil cooler to use around town and daily, and remove it when you go to the track.
