Looking for suggestions on an oil cooler for a race car. Preferably mounted behind the grills.

10 row Setrab is enough for the 12:1 on avgas in mine.

It's mounted where the right headlight once was.

 

First thing is to add an oil temperature gauge, tho- no need to overcool.

Here's how I do it: A 19 row cooler + combination of simple brackets and soft-mounts. Use a sandwich plate or adapter with a thermostat, and you can usually allow the oil to get warm enough. Otherwise, cardboard + tape. -KB

I also have a 10 row setrab...but it is mounted dead center in the nose up high.  plenty for tweaked S14 on track.

Pegasus Racing is a good source, but there are many.

Thanks. Did you get all the lines and filter housing from them too?

no.  When I prepped my race cars (Porsche) I used a factory lines to the extent possible and when that was not feasible I used Earls products. I don't know what they have for the 02 kit. But if they do offer one it certainly simplifies matters for you.

I shop at Pegasus for most of it.  A few bucks more in total, but it ALWAYS works right the first time.

 

And never a Chinese 'almost fits' AN fitting from them.  Ever.
