One thing in regards to oil cooling which does a lot more harm than good I notice on street-driven S/C e36s is nobody uses an oil cooler thermostat which is vital since the oil will take a really long time to warm up to properly lubricate and may cool down too much while doing highway driving again making the oil loose its ability to properly lubricate. The S54 oil filter housing has a built-in one for a reason.

Without the thermostat most guys with primarily street-driven cars are better off without the cooler.
