With the goal of simplicity in mind, when I start to rebuild the 2F and replace my 1F, is there any big pro or con to keeping the 2F Oil cooler?

I look at my 1F and from the thermostat housing being uncluttered, no hoses running along the side of the engine, etc it just looks cleaner and simpler and maybe one less thing to eventually leak or go wrong.

When the time comes, if I pull the thermostat housing off of my 1F and put it on the 2F, I get rid of all of the smog vacuum line fittings and the hose ports for the oil cooler.

Is there a big advantage to keeping it?

Running big tires and a bunch of extra metal. I think any additional cooling you can do is worth while. So my vote is to keep the oil cooler.
