Default Oil Coolers. Are they really worth the effort?

So to start I have a boosted 91 NA running a turbonetics t3/t4 set up, free flowing exhaust, and Megasquirt. Lots of gauges. a cage. Seats. etc. In the mail I have coming a mishimoto radiator, racing thermostat, and the 1.3bar boost cap along with some coil overs, front and rear sways, and a full poly bushing set.

The car sees 5-10 autocross events and a handfull of HPDE's a year. Lately not so much because I've been at college.

With all that oodles of stuff. Do you, the experts, feel an Oil cooler is still necessary. Anyone wanna recommend one? I have about 2k left for install and finishing the project if budget plays to much into this one.
