Has anyone added an auxiliary oil cooler? If so, where did you put it and which one? Has it helped at all?

I have not seen it done on a RR; sounds like a great idea though. Always had one on the racing Alfa's; even a pathetic one on my street Jag.

keeps us updated. geneo

The 3.9 auto has one in each side of the water radiator, for both transmission and engine oils.

No direct experience of range rover independent fitment but it's normal to have them first in airstream, ie. In front of water radiator.

I had a plan to install one, I'll post the results if anyone is interested. I was curious if others had successful implementations with ideas I could steal. Sorry, borrow, not steal.

I used a 7-row external oil tank mounted under front and slightly behind the front bumper. It is mounted with brackets made from modified home depot joist hangars. I can't quantify how much it helps, but it definitely doesn't hurt. Anything that takes heat away definitely helps.

Looks good, solid placement choice, I was thinking further back but up front behind the bumper is a great idea. Thanks!

UPDATE: For those interested, I installed an electric oil cooler inside the front sump guard, made for easy plumbing and a secure mounting spot. Happy to share details if anyone wants them.
