Ya'll rule. Thanks.

Nice pic Club Sport.

+1 on what rsrMike stated. 930Rocket also mentioned having sufficient air space behind the cooler so there is sufficient airflow through the cooler. The 930S front valence is nice, but the amount of space behind the cooler is marginal(1/2-1"). The problem is the chassis front cross member. Ideally, you could a cut a section out and create a channel which vents the air up over a modified front bonnet, but that's a lot of body work.
Have you considered a 934 like front valence? It appears the oil cooler is mounted a little lower which would improve air flow, plus you would have the added benefit of brake ducting if you decide to go that route. Maybe others that have this valence can chime in on its mounting location?
+1 on the routing of the oil lines. Make the path of the lines with as few bends as possible. See photo below on how Porsche minimized this.
