I used to have a baja bug/ converted from a vw bug
Oil pump is mechanical and just stock it has a little tower oil cooler inside the air vent shroud which is driven by a fan on back of the generator/ alternator

Of course for extreme cooling most would pipe another cooler as well and maybe even add a electric fan on it or just rely on movement to push air through it.

Not sure how a d5 pump would react to oil most is thicker than distilled think antifreeze is a better option.
Tubing does need to be chosen carefully
I dumped it as total overkill conventional premix is a lot more realistic and predictable.
