Finished install......

I triple checked all my connections and directions of flow...

Had a few nervous moments until I saw the oil pressure needle finnaly start climbing......

and yes that is tape on my radiator...lots of it.....I do no have a thermostat so tape works!

I wish I had money for the stainless lines but.......this works just fine...

Oh yeah, also finnaly had a place to put the sender for the oil temp gauge...so that works too now!

Can't wait to debut the car at next sundays LA bmw club auto-x!!

See you at Irwindale!

it may not be true with setrab coolers but mocal and earls both say not to mount them by the tabs. it appears from the pic you may have it mounted this way. mocal and earls both sell a mounting bracket and its cheap, like 15 or 18 bucks. like i said, setrab may be different

humm....the guy at the earls store didn't mention anything like that...he said just to make sure to rubber mount it.

I did, there is rubber inbetween the cooler and the sheet metal...

heres something i pulled off earls site. i tell you only because id hate to see you ruin your new cooler. but if its on rubber youre prolly ok

STOP! Temp-A-Cure coolers cannot be mounted by their ears. Failure to use proper brackets, such as Earl's Aluminum mounting brackets, will cause serious damage to the cooler.

I have a Earls store next to my work(redondo beach,ca) They have the stainless steel Braided lines that you are familiar with and as a cheaper alternative they have these "fabric" braided lines.

they are very high quality and are a rubber hose wrapped(braided)in the same style and the SS ones with some sort of nylon type fiber tread.

Very Nice..... $7.50 p/ft.

I was going to mount the cooler in another spot so I bought way to much hose....

I still have 6ft left over!

If you want some let me know I'll sell it to you at a discounted rate....

6ft is enough to mount the oil cooler were I did w/ a remote filter and everything.....

earls fabric braided hose $7.50ft

ALL PART NUMBERS FROM

http://www.summitracing.com/

Perma-Cool Remote Oil Filter spin on mount

summit part# PRM-1791 $21.88

I like this one because it has ports right and left. You only really need a in and and out but it lets you place them in whatever direction you want and i gives you 2 ports to use for other things.....like a place for the oil temp sender. If you look in my pic thats where I mounted the sender for my gauge.

Trans-Dapt Remote Oil Filter Relocation kit

summit part# TRD-1222 $49.95

(this is a kit, with other useless parts.... at the store I went to the had just the filter head pictured in the online summit catalog)

The Setrab cooler they had in stock in the store. They do not carry it at summit. But I'm told they are the best. It is what Ireland eng. uses in their "kit"

you can get them online in many places, these guys have a good price of around $100 !!!

the e30m3 part is hard to find since the dealer wants almost $500!!!

so you have to find a used one for it to be feasable...plus you have to make an adaptor for any guage senders to work with it.
