Radiator type oil coolers vs Laminar oil/water heat exchanger type..

Im hoping to learn when you would choose one type over the other for certain applications and each of their merits.

Im suggesting a oil/water Laminar type heat exchanger to my brother for the new Grp4 Escort we are building in addition to a Mocal radiator type oil cooler unit beside the coolant radiator, he doesnt think we need it, reckons that their only purpose is actually to help the engine reach operating temp quicker as opposed to cooling the oil..

I see it as more of a oil/coolant temps stabaliser which has to be a good thing to have in a race engine.. surely?
