My S3 had an oil cooler and I was told (TICHBTW) that it was a standard
fitment. On reflection though, I think you're right. I wonder if MOD
Landrovers had this??? though mine had never AFAICT been a MOD vehicle.
If they were non-standard then it's unlikely to help, but the leak on mine
was in a 3/4 od pipe running vertically from the base of the engine block up
the bulkhead and just before it went into a 90degree union to another pipe
to then go to the cooler near the front of the engine bay. Looking at the
engine from the front the pipe was to the right of the engine lump and
clipped onto the bulkhead. Quite hard to see with all the crap that was
there on mine till it got cleaned up a bit ..
