oil cooler
does any one know how easy it would be to fit an oil cooler to my car and what if any gains would come about from it?

I wouldn't expect horsepower gains, but you'd likely have longer engine and oil longevity.

There's no real benefits to it unless you track your car consistently for long periods of time.

If you're really interested in it hit up one of our sponsors, Great company and good service. 02-01-2009 07:32 PM

320? over across the pond, eh? what engine do you have in there?

I used a S54 oil cooler/hoses/filter assembly on my S52, it was a very easy swap. YRMV due to a different engine.

Air cooler is basically a radiator with oil running through it instead of water. Best place of install where it can receive maximum control of air flow thereby making the cooler as efficient as possible. Fitting of air cooler is not an easy task and for it you have to take the help of professional mechanic.
