Default Removing factory oil cooler?

Hey guys,

I have a 97', how effective is the factory oil cooler?

Is it possible to remove it and replace it with a sandwich plate (to keep the appropriate spacing for the filter)?



If you don't know, i'm talking about what Greg is pointing to in this picture.



This is whats behind the factory oil cooler, the O-ring looks special but i'm sure I can find one that is not a double lip seal.

Shoutout to Greg at TheCarPassionChannel on YouTube for the pics.

Thanks.
