Default Nismo CAI and Oil Cooler install

Just did my Injen CAI and oil cooler install on my Nismo. The CAI was fairly easy except for all the bolts and clips. The oil cooler was a different story. Because the Nismo has a body damper the normal oil cooler installation location is problematic. I ordered a series 9 setrab cooler from BAT along with their mounting bracket. Also found a way to route the oil lines thru the frame member so no cutting involved. After installing the cooler plus hose plus larger 1010 filter I am now at 6.2 quarts capacity. Cruising at Interstate speeds I am running about 25 degrees cooler. Yee ha! Track day in a little over two weeks, can't wait. Rather than post the pics here I put them in my album. Anybody else done a cooler install on a Nismo? Seems kind of funny that the Nissan motorsports cooler won't fit on the Nismo?
