Default *AE Performance Oil Cooler Kit*





AE Performance is prowd to introduce the AE Oil Cooler Upgrade.

Background:
AE Performance has run 3 different Oil Coolers Kits from other manufacturers in search of superior cooling and quality and after our 3rd attempt to find an oil cooler that can keep the Z's engine oil temps safe in high heat applications, yet respond well on the street and include high milage reliability, we gave up and decided to engineer our own kit!
Our Kit is a direct extension in every aspect of current kits on the market to provide, superior cooling, quality parts, and long term reliability.

Parts:

Full Billet Block Adapter:


Every kit we ran all came with cheap cast block adapters and one leaked right away. No Cast here. Full Billet adaptor, superior fit, will not leak or warp from heat over time. Built to last!

Teflon Coated S.S lines:


We also noticed extended wear on fender liners, chassis and any other points of contact from other kits that included S.S lines. These are like saw's and over time will eat through anything. AE's teflon coated lines not only eliminate this issue but also add a great visual aspect to the equation.

Setrab Oil Core:


It is the design of the core that sets our kit apart from the rest.

We needed this core to do 2 main things.
Keep engine oil temps safe under high heat applications, yet still be able to bring a cold engine up to proper 180' deg. for everyday street driving.
To obtain "the best of both worlds" we needed to further look into the cores design.
Unlike Conventional coolers that run lateral row's, our core run's vertical row's.
By doing this we get superior rapid high heat cooling by spreading "Hot" oil over a much larger surface area compaired to a lateral core of the same dimensions.
The much shorter vertical rows also provide much less pressure drop over a lateral core design.
Having minimal pressure drop in turn allows the cold engine oil from a cold start to easily get up to proper running temp with no lag what so ever unlike conventional large Lateral core oil coolers.

As you can see we put a ton of thought into this and are very pleased with the resluts. We have tested this kit, on and off track, drifting, autocross and everyday street driving. This upgrade is a MUST for any Z owner that does any sort of aggressive driving. N/A, Turbo, or supercharged Z's this is the kit for you.

Don't make the mistake of buying a kit that is too small or so big your car never gets up to temp on the street.

Get the Best of Both Worlds here with the AE Performance Oil Cooler kit.

Kit includes all of above + hardware and installation instructions.

MSRP: $1100.00

The370Z Member Special: $995.00 + Free Shipping for the first 5 kits in the US.

Very good write up and proven testing on and off the track. Reading through the write up I have to admitt I got some wood over this, until I got to the end and saw the price...ouch. I would have pulled the trigger on two of them for the ZBros twin Z34's. I will have to re think some other mod parts I was planning on and re shift some funds to saving for this oil cooler kit.

I have been waiting since July for a shop to R&D their own oil cooler kit and the first one was scrapped and been waiting since then for another version. Been looking at Stillen's or GTM's oil cooler kit. I was getting ant-zee and now here is AE Performance that has tested this one with great results.

It is in the price range as the Nissan oil cooler, and I see the difference (vertical bars versus horizontial).

Great job guys!

I have to seriously re- think where my funds are going. At this point I will have to save if I want this oil cooler kit.

Awesome Thanks Guys!

We've had great responce on this kit!

We do know it is expesive compaired to other variants out their but they don't compare in quality/quanity. Our kit is $$ b/c we used big $$ parts.

You truely get what you pay for in this case.

Compaired to Nismo, ARC, Central 20, MCR, etc were a bargin.


We ran two of the above kits and one other not mentioned and every one was not enough in the canyon, track or any sort of high performance driving. and the other was plenty but took a decade to heat up on the street.

Don't make the the mistake we did and think, "this kit will be fine" Our kit defently is the best of both worlds. Stock or Modded cars, Street or Circut driving.

Did you design this to fit on all models?

I have a Nismo model which has that front chassis damper that stretches accross the radiator. Will it fit? By the way I'm in Orange County if you want to look at it.

Thanks.

you can't just flip the damper as is done in the half-width cooler installs?

Yes, but so far all of our Nismo customers have opted to just get rid of it.

i've heard it might just be for vibration, not actually chassis stiffness. i don't see how it can't help the stiffness though.

What's the lead time on these ? Also you say the heat up time for DD is still decent correct ? This will be my next mod and I'm really only looking at this one at this time.

So I was browsing the AE news and saw this update pasted below about the 370z still overheating (280 degrees) at the Redline Attack with reference to having an oil cooler? Can you guys at AE explain what happened there.

I'm still in the research phase of deciding which one to get and I really want to make the right choice here. Your's is pricey but if it can keep it cool on a 95 degree day at the track, then I'll spend the extra $$.

I am in New England and I will be driving my car in some cooler and wider ranging temps (40's - 90's) and want the most cooling as possible without worrying about reaching a decent temp. I haven't found anyone reviewing it yet online who has actually installed it. And your website still doesn't have it listed in the products section nor does it have any installation instructions/info just so I can see what's what. Thanks in advance!

"Paul Dentice in the AE Performance 370z takes 1st at Spring Mountain

Recap by Paul D.
Spring Mountain was a first for the AE crew and with 18 turns it was anything but easy to figure out the fast way through the course, but fortuneately NV locals including Mike and the Double Down crew were super cool in lending a helping hand.

On track the car felt rock solid. The AE preped JIC dampers allowed for late apexing and a planted rear end through the high speed sections even with the old tires we were on. (3 track days).

We switched to Ferodo RS3000 pads for our AP brakes that ended up being a bit too aggressive in the rear but a quick swap to a milder Mintex pad in the rear settled the car much more and was easier to keep stright under hard braking.

Heat was a major issue for everyone. With the Oil Cooler upgrade we were still only able to complete 1 hot lap before the oil temps hit 280deg and the car wouldn’t rev past 5k rpm’s.

After all was said and done, We were all really impressed with the Z. With viturally no power mods out-side of a Stillen intake and Mine’s Flash we were solely relying on the Z’s chassie to pull through for us and it did! Rich placed 5th in Modified RWD Class in the GT2, GTR (DNF),and I grabbed top honors in SS RWD class with the Z, and was able to make the 4.5hr drive back to the OC without a hick-up."

I thought the same reading the blog and then noticed the date of the blog was Sept 30, 2009 and it looks like they released the oil cooler in Dec 2009.
