ak, well it run to 8500rpm, no oil cooler as standard, when it was 140bhp i was getting temps of 110-120 if i remember correctly.... so i have decided with the extra revs ill get me one to be safe, its a 13 row jobbie, only cost 35 brand new, its a copy of mocals one. ill get a sandwich plate off a c20xe and use the thermo off that, then get some pipes made up, shouldnt cost too much to sort really.

corsa808, i dont run it that high much to be honest, i get scared.... want to beef the bottom end up some..... im running 60mm trumpets at the moment with no filter as of yesterday (im puttign it back just getting the base plate drilled) it needs to be mapped more so when its mapped hopefully well make the power come in sooner due to the change of cam timing.....

Just make sure you run a stat. The oil taking that extra time to warm up cos its going through the cooler can cause as much long term damage as high oil temps!!!

Spot on tho, I really fancy one myself! im just struggling to get a reasonably priced one with a built in stat!

Id say if your regularly seeing 115+C oil temps then its worth thinking about one, I generally like my oil below 100 if I can.

As I said in the above post tho, for a road car I think a thermo controlled one is a must!

stu, the c20xe runs a sandwich plate wit hbuild in stat, and im informed it will fit the x16xe.... same filter so cant see why not.... so im using that

what size are you looking for, why dont you run a sandwich plate then the stat can be in there..... any other reason why you want one with a built in stat

Yeah, if the filter size is the same then you should be sorted, all you need then are send and return pipes to the cooler!

Im only looking for a little 13 row like yours, I think thats ample. Its just with P1 engine failure being quite common I like to keep the oil nice and cool. My two worries with oil coolers are:

1) If you dont use a thermostat the oil is running through the cooler from start up so it will take a lot longer to warm up causing extra wear over the long term (especially to bottom end shells which is a common P1 failure)
2) When you initially fit the cooler or do oil changes you need to make sure there is no air cavities trapped in the cooler or there is a chance they could be passed round the oil system. Probably the best way would be to prime it then dry crank the engine by removing the crank sensor or summat?
