    I'd say before to keep junk out of the cooler if anything comes Loose. Not based on any professional experience or knowledge just my opinion.

    before...keeps junk out of the cooler and hot oil filters easier.

    Although I completely agree that it should go thru the filter first for all the above reasons, has anybody ever looked at the flow path of a Olson block mounted cooler?

    Should the oil in the cooler flow with the water or against it?
    Everything is 3/4" if that matters.

    Unless it's absolutely necessary, I don't recommend remote filters. If it's necessary, it doesn't matter before or after. Just keep everything as close to the engine as possible.

    I have to agree. Unless the cooler has a built in filter arrangement like a H&M or a Olson, I would use a bypass sandwich plate at the engine that the filter mounts to. Running lines from the engine, to the filter, then to the cooler, then back to the engine is unnecessary and causes undue pressure loss.

    Against. This maximizes the temperature difference between the oil and the water along the length of the heat exchanger = more heat transfer.

    No dyno data. Its not really something you measure on a dyno.
    There is reams and reams of data to back it up. Most is useless info because its pretty much simple physics But every heat exchanger is routed like this one.* You can move the water in and outs, or the oil in and outs so they are on the same side, so long as they stay on the same end of the exchanger. You only have to pipe one wrong to see why its wrong. Specially when you are aiming at a specific thermal exchange, and your off by a country mile.

    *unless there is a reason to do so other wise, which off hand, never seen, and can't really think of a reason to do it reversed.
    Of the rougly 10,000+ heat exchangers I have seen in the past 40+ years, I have never seen one plumbed differently.
