This should also help when I'm stuck in traffic.

That ***MIGHT*** be one way of cooling the oil, but not boost. This is just effectively adding an oil cooler. I'm not really sure how well an AC condenser works for this (as opposed to a Mocal, Setrab, or some other oil cooler). I'm also not sure how good a job the stock turbo scavenge pump would do at pumping oil that far???
