So my engine oil cooler came loose and fell and then it dragged on the ground. I can't find an oem replacement anywhere in town. All the auto parts have is a "universal" one. Just wondering if something like this will provide the same cooling features as the oem one. Thanks.
Well the bracket that holds it on is held together with what looks like some sort of rvt or silicone. It just wore out from old age I guess. I can't wait for one to be mailed cuz my work situation. I posted a wanted ad in the classifieds if anything.
I have a 9 row, something like 11x10 and it is not quite enough, but if you are in a bind and need transport one like it will get you buy until you can find a replacement, just easy on the foot feed and watch your oil temp.
Yes keep the bypass valve to let your oil heat up to the t-stat temp. the way mine is going to be routed is; from the pump to the s4 cooler then to the beehive bypass ( beehive will also bypass until oil comes up to temp.valve, that will allow the s4 cooler to have first chance and then the beehive. a lot for me will depend on how well i can control water temp.
That looks pretty darn nice id like to see if it's equal to or better than stock, price point is pretty good to. On topic when I asked I was told stock is the best in fact I run a FC oil cooler on my 1st gen 12a and it runs max 160*F in 90*+ temps.
