FYI, that's most likely a motec oil cooler, not motul.

yeah, sounds like you're not getting airflow.  if this is an S4, which
way are they expecting the air to flow?  i suspect they expect it to go
through the front ducts and out the bottom of the car through the oil
cooler.  however, the pressure under the car may be higher than they're
expecting it to be, which means there won't be much air flow.  one 
thing that might help would be an airdam placed in front of the oil cooler.
try getting an airdam from a ford ranger or chevy S10 - they're pretty
wide, and you can get them for $6 at the junkyard (or $70 for a new one
from the dealer).

you may also need to put a small fan on the oil cooler to help force
air through it.
