I have built 2 RVs a 7A and a 9 with on oil cooler mounted on the baffling and the other on the firewall. Even though I beefed up the baffle with doublets and angles I ended up with a crack by the first annual. I was able to stop drill and add more support but I was never happy. The second plane had a firewall mount and after 500 hours I am very happy. Obviously I recommend moving to the firewall
