Oil cooler options?

Hi Iím wondering which option would best for me. Iím trying to make this my daily driver. 13b turbo, FMIC. Was wondering which one of the three would be best
1: stock oil cooler (or 9 row)
2. Dual oil coolers (parallel)
3. Oil cooler with fan.
(Kinda already bought the oil cooler with fan. Just donít know if I should go dual, keep the stock one, or if the fan will do)

being as your going FMIC, I"d say go FD dual oil cooler setup that way the oil is getting its own airflow, your already going to be choking the radiator with the front mount, no point in choking both

what do you mean by chocking the radiator with the front mount? And is there a difference between fc and fd dual oil cooler setup?

sorry, I misspelled, choking the radiator with the front mount

and yes AFAIK, the FD uses a dual oil cooler, they reside on the FDs pretty much where the brake ducts are on the FC behind the bumper, the FC unit is a single unit that is below the radiator and angled down in the stock FC location
