IIRC it was done as a "pro-active reliability" measure, not necessarily to correct any "real" problem. I don't know if the parts are "bolt on" or not. If so, it wouldn't be a bad thing to upgrade if one wished - but I doubt it will help with your roasted chestnuts.............

If you haven't already, try synthetic oil. It consistently drops the oil temp by a good 20+ degrees on every HD I ever put it in.

The oil cooler at least should be a bolt on, that and full syn will make a pretty big difference vis-a-vis the grilled goolies...
