To oil cool, or not to oil cool?

Recommended Posts

Alrighty then.....

 

Ive got everything to install an oil cooler on my RX...remote base and pump adapter....lines are easy, and I have many choices for cooler cores....so, should I install it? And where should I mount it?

 

Let the opinions fly!

William, does the adapter have a thermostat?

Where you live this may not be an issue, but I am sure you realize the importance of getting the oil to a temp about 215 F so volatiles and condensation are "boiled" out.

I have a digital lab thermometer with a thermocouple in the oil pan, I am amazed at how fast the oil comes up to temp on our turbo cars, I feel during the summer months the cooler is a good idea. My turbo's oil runs at 260 - 270 deg F in my climate (W PA)

Marnix sent one to I think Boz - seems some of the Euro models came with them.

Might try him.
