Default Engine oil cooler and steering fluid cooler or not?

After reading through another post, I see that I don't have the RPO for the engine oil cooler:

KC4 - engine oil cooling system

But... having been under my car 9000 times, I know there are lines that run from the oil filter adapter to the radiator. I would assume that is the oil cooler.

Also, is there a steering fluid cooler? Because I can't find one.

Some cars had a power steering fluid cooler, but not sure what years they were available

Here is a thread with pics.

yes you should have the lines that run from the filter adapter to the Rad that is for the oil...

and the PS cooler is located on the frame as you can see in the pics

Possible it would be elsewhere on a 92? I do not have one there.

Me either.

I find it odd I don't have one.

I know my 93 SSE SC does not have it, or it is in a different location cause I has no trouble getting the sway bar out.

maybe it'* an NA thing....
