Of course, now the radiator coolant absorbs heat instead of giving up heat. The oil from oil pump passes through filter and then goes through oil cooler before returning to go to crank, cams, turbo.
The coolers integrated in tank of radiator work this way too with a little modification. Those have the oil going through a mini radiator that sits in the hot end of radiator. Auto trans cooler gets the cold end.
