I figure that a EJ207 is significantly more reliable than a EJ257 and offers higher RPM redline (great for autocross) and gets me within my goals (12s on the 1/4 mile @ my lowish elevation). But how reliable is it? I figure through an oil cooler I can maximize it...

How does the spec C oil cooler work exactly? Is it hard to retrofit a regular ej207 block to have the same system? I assume I can increase the reliability of the motor significantly through an oil cooler.

Or should I just use a universal oil cooler kit? I plan on occasionally tracking the car in the summer and want to maintain absolute reliability because this car will continue to be my daily driver...

Buying a Spec C motor is out of the equation because it's hard to get and my local JDM places offer great prices on regular ej207s
