talk to WJM. see if he has any leftover. he had the adaptors. the rest (lines,fittings,and cooler) are up to you. as you can see I went a little over board.
oh and yes it will help lower you engine temp a little bit. you still need a properly functioning cooling system too.

what about your timing? incorrect timing will cause you to run hot as well.
if all that is good go for it put a oil cooler system on. I put one on because I use the A/C on long hot trips sometimes in the mountians. It did help keep my system cooler.
you are running a 50/50 mix of coolant and soft water?
Red Line makes water wetter that sometims helps too.

mainly it gets hot if im at a stop, but even moving again at about 10+ mph brings the temp back down. It also will get hot at 65-75 when its 100+ degrees F out. Oh, and it will get not as hot but certainly over the line if Im climbing hills.
Ive tried from none to 50-50 coolant mix. About half a thing of coolant does best.
What is redline?

it sounds as though you have a fan problem.

alex, (if that is your real name ) you need the cooling system i have, it stays at 170 F all the time, even with the fans off.
Posted 17 May 2004 - 12:51 PM
And yes Alex is my real name.

170 is not healthy. Cooler is not better, as your oil will not reach it's proper viscosity rating, and the metals in the engine will not fully expand to their operating state. The stock thermostat is set to open at 195 degrees, and the engine should run at a constant temp of at least 200-210 degrees.
who cares, whats the darn cooling setup!

Yes I might be interested in the oil cooler.
But I am thinking I might take my tranny lines and run them through a seperate cooler, might make all the difference for both the tranny and the engine.
Yea thursday can work, I am done at 3

i am officially discounting his information. 195 thermostats are made for peepl that want a hotter heater, and lower emissions. 180 degree stats work well, and dont hurt a damn thing, cept make your car spit out a little more emissions.
my ea81s run at the half way mark, and if they go any higher i start looking for reasons why. with a 180 they ride a bit below the middle line. and if nothiing else they will give you 1or 2 hp just by lowering the temp of the intake by 10-15 degrees.
isnt about the only thing that kills these cars head gasket failures? from heat? and pressures too high, for long periods of time?!!
i figure you should do everything you can to make your car run cooler, and it will last longer. like 180 thermostats and an oil cooler, and a good radiator.

BTW: my rad has a slow leak anyway so i need a new one soon anyhow

I notice you have your crossover pipe de-shielded? maybe put a small heas shield on top of it to radiate heat away from the oil filter?
