    Oil coolers...

    Who has one and what kind is it? Need something to help keep the engine temps under control on stupid hot days when Ol Paint is out playing at the track.

    I’m running the MM kit with Mocal oil cooler and thermostatic oil filter plate.

    B&M super cooler with Spal fan.
    Fan controller is built in and cycles fan off n on at 180deg. Added a relay to keep fan load off the switch which has proven dead nuts reliable thus far.
    How well does it work, at Mosport in the heat, highest temp seen was 220, bulk of the time it hovered in the 217 / 218 range.
    Mounted in drivers side inner fender on similar angle to Don's, pull LH fog light for track day.

    I’ve been doing some homework to try and find a suitable cooler. The ones from Setrab seem promising. Need to get Ol Paint down to Dr. ZR to do some exploratory surgery to see where the cooler can be mounted.

    Same construction type comes in a trans cooler. Very efficient plus extremely durable. Sold under several mfgs including B&M plus Canadian Tire.

    I’m thinking of adding a tranny cooler to my Lexus SC400. The auto tranny runs hot and is a known issue. The thing has a funky hydraulically driven radiator cooling fan that runs on tranny fluid and has a cooler. I have a spare cooler from my parts car that I’m thinking of retasking to the tranny. I was thinking of simply plumbing in series for additional cooling. I’m wondering if thermostatic control is needed. I’m guessing a fan on the + cooler isn’t needed.

    Opinions?

    Not sure how much that might impact fluid flow, perhaps a larger single cooler with a fan?

    Good point, I hadn’t considered flow implications or anything beyond quick and easy with parts on hand. I just replaced the radiator too (with coolant/tranny integrated)
