Looking at fitting an Engine Oil Cooler. 3 types Finned, Core/Plate & Finned and tube. What would your preference be?

Have heard a lot of good reports on the Finned type, actually leaning that way at the moment but interested to see what others have to say. Want good flow as I don't want to restrict the oil flow.

i know nothing about the middle one, however plate & fin (3rd one) is alot more efficient than tube & fin (1st one)

so a tiny plate & fin cooler will do the same job as a large tube & fin
