Question Oil coolers

Just wondering if anyone is running a engine oil cooler? if so what are the "pros & cons" of doing so?
I am thinking of running one on my (almost) rebuilt 351W?
Thanks Keg

It's called insurance. I think it's a great idea on any engine although if you're not towing or doing tackwork and you have a hi volume sump there is probably little need.

you can never have too much cooling. If you are going to this extent, you may want to run a trans cooler, run it in series with the inbuilt radiator cooler, and never have to worry about it again.
