Stop whatever you're doing and buy the Z1 Motorsports kit.

They offer 19, 25, 34 row coolers with the exact length of hose and all the parts required.

Trips, Presto, Rusty and 3 others like this.

I just installed a 34 row Z1motorsports kit in my car. Love it. Best mod so far. My temps were at around 220 when I was just cruising before the install. If I started really driving it, it would climb to 240ish. Now after install my temp stays at 180 and that really driving it hard in 90 degree humid New Jersey days. Install went great. Kit fit with no issues. Great guys over there. Excellent customer service.

Looks like most things are covered so I'll just drop in to say this, 'NEVER put Mishimoto products on your car'

We have a saying at my tuners shop, 'Friends don't let friends put Mishimoto parts on their cars!'

Cant believe you put this thread up, there must be something in the air lol.

I was just about to make a post regarding oil cooling especially cooling when it comes to forced induction.

Im currently running the Stillen Gold Series Race oil cooler, 25 rows with AN8 fittings. We are running the stock front bumper/fascia with Stillen front lip and Stillen canards. On track around 20oC ambient temps we are able to get the oil up to around 120oC in around 10 minutes which is useless.

We are upgrading to the FrozenBoost charge cooler radiator so currently from the front to back:-

FrozenBoost Type 101 26x7x3.5 Radiator
Stillen Gold Series Race 25 Row Oil Cooler
Mishimoto Aluminium Radiator

So my conundrum is:

Option 1:- Using the current thermostatic plate with AN8 fittings and up rate the cooler to a 34 row x 235mm from APS and leave in the current position and add 8" electric fan.

Option 2:- Replace the thermostat with a Mocal sandwich plate with AN10 or AN12 fittings with APS 34 row x 235mm and leave in current position and add 8" electric fan.

Option 3:- Replace the thermostat with a Mocal sandwich plate with AN10 or AN12 fittings with APS 34 row x 235mm and leave in current position and attempt to position cooler in the driver side (UK right hand side) bumper below the headlight and put two 76mm intakes

Option 4:- Using the current oil cooler setup and move to driver side (UK right hand side) bumper below headlight and use oil cooler shroud with two 76mm intakes.

Option 5:- Replace thermostat with Mocal sandwich plate with AN10 or AN12 fittings and place a Setrab 592mm x 14 row (122mm) SLM cooler place right across the base of the radiator, kind of where the Stillen one sits except a lot longer yet shorter in height.

What do you guys think?

I dont really want to try all those options or I will be buying multiple bumpers and multiple coolers lol

Agreed with Andrew, An why not install a temp switch that comes on when the oil hits 180? I never tacked my car but would get on it here and there in summer here 90's -100 and humid and never ran into an oil temp issue with my SC. I'm assuming you have the rad fans coming on full at 185 . Its not the oil cooler but the cooler the motor and area cant hurt.

An there is, LOL will probably stay with Stillen tho too

It's all about the position and the overall airflow though. It's no good if you can pump the cooler full of fresh air if the hot air coming out the back has no where to go.

Ideal scenario for me would be able to fit a 34 row cooler in where the washer bottle is with a custom made shroud, 8" electric fan on the back of it and vented wheel arch to pump the air out. That would be ideal. Got knows, need to take the bumper off again and measure up.

I'm definitely in need of an oil cooler -- 45 min of highway driving in Sunday's 90-degree temps had the needle at 250 degrees; can't imagine what 20 min on a track would do! -- and the Z1 Motorsports site does a great job of explaining the difference between all of the available options except one: what's the difference between a Mocal core and a Setrab core (other than $45?).

Please keep in mind that I know nothing about mechanics.

Setrab cores are rock solid. They have been used in racing applications forever. For $45 extra, get the Setrab.

do you plan on getting Uprev? If so I would go with a smaller core since they can modify fan tables. I dont have an oil cooler but it cools down relatively fast. With that said, I am getting a 25 row oil cooler from Z1.

Cannot say enough good things about my Z1 oil cooler. Even when it is 115 degrees out, the oil stays nice and cool.
