Nice. My only question is if there is going to be any problem "burping" the oil coolers when both the feed and the return are plumbed on the bottom like that?

Actually, the fitting on the bottom make it able to drain more oil out of the system. When I did my custom cooler upgrade, I had the fittings on top as I was leary about the fitting on the bottom (hitting the ground or something). With the stock headlights, it was fine. However, I had also bought the Knightsport Headlights and with the fittings up I don't have enough room for the lights to completely close.

So, I will be flipping my oil cooler.

I'd be more concerned with oil pump specs, going through 2 coolers and all that line.
