Default Announcing the release of the STILLEN race oil cooler

Hey Guys,

The long wait is over! We are proud to announce the STILLEN 370Z Race oil cooler. Due to demand from the heavy track guys on the forum we have made a few modifications to our current street oil cooler so that it will be even more effective for track use.



Currently STILLEN is using a Setrab Oil Cooler in our street kit which is designed specifically for engineís producing between 220-310 horsepower. This is why we chose this core to integrate into our Nissan 370Z oil cooler kit. It is a good size and it has been proven to work very well. It prevents the car from going into limp mode by reducing oil temperatures below the factory limited controls.

However, for the guys that are really pushing their cars hard on the race track we feel that they would benefit from an even larger oil cooler option. The current Setrab oil cooler unit we are using is designed to dissipate around 37,000 BTU/HR. This new Setrab oil cooler is designed to dissipate around 60,000 BTU/HR which is about an additional 20-30 degrees removed from the oil temperature.

We have found that when pushed hard on the race track during 20-30 minute track sessions the street oil cooler kit prevents the car from going into limp mode but the oil temperatures still reach around 240-260 degrees. These temperatures arenít bad but we would like to see them a little lower. The new race oil cooler option will give an even greater drop in temperature of around 20-30 degrees. This new oil cooler core has twice the surface area of the street core but will be a direct bolt-in and will be able to work with the same lines as the street oil cooler. This means that anyone with the street cooler can upgrade to the race cooler with minimal fuss. The race oil cooler uses a 26 row core, versus the street oil cooler's 19 rows.

For a limited time (30 days) we will be offering an upgrade path for our customerís who have purchased the street oil cooler and would like to upgrade to the race cooler. This upgrade kit will include the new core, mounting bracket, and all of the necessary mounting hardware. For more information on the upgrade kit and pricing please call in and speak with one of our representatives.

Here is a link to the two oil cooler options:
STILLEN : STILLEN Oil Cooler Kit

Here is a comparison photo of the two radiator cores. The one in front is the street core, the one in back is the race core.

Just wanted to jump in and clarify something. I saw something in the Nissan Motorsport/Stillen oil cooler comparison thread that I would like to address.

In the installation picture (of the Nissan Motorsport oil cooler) it looks like the crash bumper needs to be removed (and I assume re-installed) in order to install the cooler? It also looks like the crash beam will then cover about 40% of the top half of the oil cooler when it is re-installed? If I'm mistaken please correct me. Our race oil cooler is designed to be mounted directly in front of the crash beam and the crash beam does not need to be removed or modified in order complete the installation. There is also no air restriction from the crash beam as it does not get near the front of the cooler.

We will be installing the race cooler on our car shortly. We still have some testing of other parts to do first but this installation is definitely a priority. I will have more photos and detailed explanation of this as soon as we complete the installation.

Please do not take this post as derogatory towards the Nissan Motorsport oil cooler. Just trying to offer a little more information for those looking for their oil cooler.

Kyle, has this new race oil cooler been fully tested yet?

Very promising product, although I am sitting on the fence for the time being until I hear more of testing results.

Will this race cooler be suitable for street and track or is it strictly plumbed (geared) for track only?

Not to step on Kyle's thread (I'm a Stillen fan), but I'd caution anyone in the cooler climes to upgrade to a thermostatic sandwich plate. With a cooler this large (Perfect for track use) you stand the possibility of the oil never really getting up to temp on the street...Particularly in the cooler months in the northern areas. You guys (Stillen) really should offer the option of a thermostatic plate with this......Not everyone lives in California!...:-)

There are other options for a thermostatic sandwich plate if Stillen doesn't end up offering one. I am in Tucson, AZ. so I doubt I will need one, but once I get a large oil cooler (probably Stillen) I will keep an eye on oil temps as winter comes.
