Hard to quantify, or even confirm, the impact of the oil cooler itself, but
I would say yes, a little.  Starting at about 10 degrees lower gives me more
headroom.  The added volume of oil allows for, I am assuming, a bit more
dissipation of heat as well.  That said, I still do all I can to avoid
freeway congestion when it is above 90; I prefer to use surface streets
where I can vary my route and at least have some recover between stoplights.
I also find that when stopped, running at about 1700-1800 rpm moves a lot
more air (I have a 6-blade tropical fan) which helps buy me more time.  Or I
avoid driving altogether under those conditions, as they are not much fun on
the driver either!

Does the oil cooler help in So Cal stop-and-go (and stop again) traffic/red
