Triumph TR3 - TR2 Cooling

I am restoring a 1954 TR2, TS2244L. The engine is going to be modified, with 86 mm pistons, increased compression, gas flowed head, bigger valves, performance exhaust, fast road (and a little bit) cam. In my past experience, TR series cars run hot and these modifications are going to make the problem worse. I plan on using a radiator without the hole for the crank handle, so that should help somewhat. So will an oil cooler, but I'm not sure of a good way to mount it, given the inner mounting configuration for the grille. I really don't want to mount it in front of the grille. Any general cooling suggestions or specific suggestions for this application?

I'm sorry about my mistake in placing my TR2 cooling thread in the TR3 section.
