The best cooling will be with a GT-style cooler up in the front trunk. This requires cutting holes for the oil lines, and holes for the air ducting. You do need a duct for the air, or it won't bother going through the cooler. And that loses much of the front trunk space.

I know that a number of people have put an external cooler on the engine lid. With or without a dedicated electric fan to pull air through it. I'm not wild about it, but it has worked.

I have put a cooler hanging down under the rear trunk floor on my four-cylinder car. Note that this is a lousy location for cooling, as there isn't great air flow and what you have has already been warmed up by the exhaust. But it is better than nothing, and only requires a few small mounting bracket holes in the car--if you are a bit creative with running the lines, at least.
