Oil cooler build

Recommended Posts

With another road course season around the corner I'm putting together a oil cooler build. My oil temps on the track last year we're hitting the 270-275 degree range. I'm copying the bracket in the Mishimoto GT mustang kit and using a different sandwich plate and making my own hoses and fittings.

Thanks for the views, as projects like this can benefit many more DIY soldiers. It's really hard to find solutions sometimes to our "car addictions", Lol.

Pretty cool! I had to work around an oil cooler setup while installing an SFI crank dampener and it was a PITA trying to use an AN wrench in that confined space not to mention routing the thick hoses.

I had no idea that mishimoto plate was a thing. Thats pretty cool.

 

One of these days I will follow suit with this and the brake ducts... Although I really should have done the ducts when I did my brake swap lol.

That's a nice clean install. What cooler did you use?

Very nice, curious to see how it improves your on track temps.

Right now I'm seeing anywhere between 15-20 degree's temperature drop pushing it hard on the street at different rpm and mph. I can't wait to see on the track next month.

Well I broke in my new oil cooler yesterday at Thompson speedway. On average it kept my oil temp down 22 degrees from last years readings, we will see when it gets a lot hotter on the track but really happy so far.

Ran my car at Lime Rock Thursday and my oil temp stayed at a nice 245-250 degrees, down about 23+ degrees from last year when I didn't have a oil cooler.

I don't have one, and I really have no idea what temps I am hitting are.... Hopefully nothing to insane. We only run 20 minute sessions, and my water temp never even goes above normal at all if that is at all a way to compare.

 

I have thought about an oil cooler, but have just not done it yet. Advice..?
