Engine Oil Cooler

Has anyone added an engine oil cooler to their Edge?
I'm thinking about adding one using a sandwich plate between the oil filter and engine.
I recently had an oil analysis that indicated oxidation.
One of the primary contributors to oxidation is heat.
Are there any technical issues with the engine oil pressure or flow that would/could be a problem?

Thanks for all your help. I'm overwhelmed with the response.

I got the answer from another source.

Basically, the lack of response answered your question.
A) Why have your oil analyzed--are you trying to run it longer than recommended?
B) If you have an oxidation problem that you say is caused by heat, why not just change to synthetic oil?
If there was a heat/oil life problem in the Flex, I would think there would be some mention of it on the forums.

By the way, what was the response from another source?
