Interesting that it adds 4lbs of oil...didn't think of that! Looks like a nice unit but why run a line to the far side of the cooler?

The one big plus, IMO, is you can use the sturdy factory hard lines with the C&R/BW unit.

You definitely won't be disappointed in the oil cooler

At this time, we only have plans to release this product as a full kit. We will be offering the adapter setup by itself but we have yet to discuss offering just the cooler. I will be sure to mention this to our production team to see if we can split the cooler from the kit.

Correct, all of our testing data was compiled with the belly pan removed. This includes the stock cooler and the Mishimoto unit.

At this time, we are very pleased with the efficiency we saw at these temperatures and we anticipate similar gains during track driving and/or in a hot/humid environment.

This cooler should be released in around 1-1.5 weeks. We will update this thread once it becomes available.

We have had several offers for independent hot weather and track testing, we may move forward with this for an additional data point!

Thank you very much! The stock cooler is a smaller unit, with both lines on one side of the cooler by using a crossover pipe. Our unit is a single pass core with a line on each end tank, this is why the lines differ. This is also why we are able to improve pressure drop compared to the factory cooler while still providing greater heat transfer.

I agree but was just curious if there was anything planned.

There will be several of us putting your oil cooler through the hot weather paces. Looking forward to the release.

I was wondering if this arrangement in design had to do with the pressure drop improvements. One of the reasons for competing vendors and products. Very pleased with the way you folks have stepped up the game in this area.

Solid radiator and no doubt this will be solid as well.
