While pumping oil through a heat exchanger is a great idea and may very well work better overall (because it is directly heating the trans fluid). I would like to stay away from it simply because it is additional wear parts and more complexity. I prefer the method of just using the existing cooling system and adding a valve because its relatively simple. The simpler, the more reliable, the cheaper and easier / quicker it is to make.
