oil cooler line flow direction

I have just replaced my oil cooler lines with my own DIY type kit but neglected to pay attention to the direction of flow of oil. Does it matter if the oil flows through the radiator from top down or bottom up?

I'm pretty sure it is more efficient to flow from the top down.

Does the oil flow through the center of the filter and then out or does it go from the outside in and out the center? I feel quite stupid asking this.

Looks like it goes in the side and out the middle.

Thank You. That's a great site for info. I was doing well with this project until I went to put it all back together. I had the lines rebuilt by an industrial hose and fitting company. They are not stainless but are at least away from the manifold and are good to 300F. $140 Canadian too. Our local speed shop wanted over $40 a fitting for aeroquip stuff. Too much bling. This should do just as well. Thanks again for your responses.
