An inline cooler on that line would not take away from the cam lubrication at all. In fact, the cooler tube diameter is twice the size as the stock tube. As someone mentioned before, it would add capacity. As far as drain back, it does that anyways stock, and the delay in lube time on startup would be less than 5 seconds, and there is plenty sitting around up there to handle that. I am not set on going that way, but the one problem it presents equally to the sump style, is having it thermally switched, or at least have a gate in front of the cooler, or a boot to put on it. I have it digitally monitored on the temp, and I would not mind pulling over to just move a flap out of the way to bring the cooler in to play.
