Laminova heat exchanger install

I will be installing a Laminova heat exchanger and was wondering whether to install it on the left side (hot) radiator hose going to the radiator, or on the right side (cooled) hose. I had a good look just now, and it seems possible to do it either way, just wanted an informed opinion.

Thanks for looking.

Hot side puts thermal load directly into the radiator and I would guess this is what you want if you are having oil temp issues on the track. Cooled side will help the water temp come up quicker, for a street driven car this would be helpful. What oil temps are you logging that you are trying to correct?

My car is mostly street driven, with 4-6 DE track days/year. I am trying to get oil temp up quicker and higher on the street. I do not have a oil temp/pressure gauge in yet, going in next week, but from all the research I have done it seem oil temp is too low for these cars.
