The issue you'll have fitting a none OE oil cooler is the couplings/thread on the original pipes won't match after market, you'll end up using adapters which will drop the pipes too low so an under tray won't fit.

Just buy an OE cooler, Valeo part 816666, cost around £120, give or take £20. A larger cooler will be somewhat wasted since the oil cooler air duct matches the OE radiator. But you might find it hard to separate the pipes from the cooler.

Original pipes are not available anymore.

I had to add new hoses to the original pipes. New couplings (soldered) on the pipes. I bought stainless steel hoses and a new Valeo cooler.
