If anyone's looking for a "monster" solution, I've had excellent results
using the FB RX7 oil coolers. They are dual-pass, about 20x3x7 and have a
built in thermostat at 180ºF. Of course I'm pretty sure that the Audi oil
cooler/filter bracket assemblies are thermostatic as well.
There's a ton of options out there ranging from $500 to $6.50, and they all
do about the same thing.
