    Its like it was made for it! Fits perfectly here, even lines up with 2 existing holes to bolt it up!

    That should be sufficient air flow?

    Do you have a relocated oil filter already? If not, then this might be a good time to get one, as you will need to get the lines made up for the cooler anyway. Definitely steer clear of cheapo no name lines, and get some PTFE lines to avoid any potential issues in the future. Also, If you dont have a thermostatically controlled oil filter housing, then you may need to block the oil cooler core with corflute for when you are just driving around on the street, as the oil will likely be over cooled if the core is fully exposed to good airflow.

    If possible, try to mount the core vertically, with the oil feed line going to the bottom fitting, as its alleged that doing this helps to get rid of any air bubbles in the oil.

    Nice work on the clear coat repair too, it looks a lot better
    wow thats great info man!!!
    Na standard oil filter location atm, and yeah will get a thermostatic housing.

    I wanted to install an oil cooler, I have never done it before, but what are things i should look out for or consider? I found a cheap used Setrab 10 row oil cooler, it has AN fittings already, I just need the lines

    I've been watching Beavis' YT clips which are pretty good!
