I have a similar setup on my NA vvt '93. Keeps oil temps to around 220 or less on track in ~98+ ambient Texas weather. I'm thinking a nice, small electric fan will really help improve efficiency since it's seeing air after the radiator. That is my next plan, and I'll wire it on a switch so I can compare on the same day.

Do report back how that works, I have considered it but I dont really want to add complexity if I dont have to.

Im close to having real data on this double-fan setup as well. They are 2A, 147 CFM each from Summit Racing. Had this on my previous build but did not have a real temp gauge to show actual drop in temps at that time. Waiting in line to get the dyno tune and 3 DP/exhaust built right now. Have it wired on a separate circuit to program the on/off as I want to.

There are a few ducting options in the market, too lazy to look for you more than 1 but there are cheaper ones too

Since this is a great thread I am adding my take on it (Well, my awesome mechanic's really)
13 row setrab with -10an 60 deg up top and a straight one down.
Used Russell 632160 for the hose lines and had just enough.

You're going to need to sheath that oil line with split loom and keep a close watch on it to prevent it from sawing into the intercooler pipe/hose.
Stainless steel braided hoses are nice but they MUST not rub anything!

Ditto the warning on routing stainless braided hose. It's a buzzsaw to what ever it touches.

I cut a short piece of radiator hose to act as a barrier for my oil cooler lines.
