Oil cooler help for Ruf valance

I'm going to be replacing my valance with a Ruf and I'm 99% sure my current oil cooler will not fit behind. I currently have a BB cooler that measures roughly 27" x 7" x 3" (likely will be for sale sometime in the next 5 months).

For those that have a Ruf valance, what size cooler do you have?

Also, I have a big HP motor and want to make sure that a cooler that will fit will be sufficient or if I should run a duel cooler set up? The compact cooler from our host looks like a possible easy solution.

I'm in Pittsburgh (a 90 degree day is rare) and plan on doing DE events.

As you probably know Ruf has an oil cooler that is designed to work with that valence. It's a perfect fit. They show up for sale from time to time. It's very effective too.

For DE get the biggest center mount cooler that will fit.
Keep the fender cooler too as additional help and try to get air flow to it by opening up the bumper or ducting from the lower valence.
Maximizing air flow across the cooler is key to getting the temps down.
