R32 GTR Motorsport Oil Cooler Setups


Recommended Posts

 

Fellas,

 

Have been doing more and more circuit work / time attack lately and a limiting factor is oil temps sky rocketing and not dropping off at all.

 

I have a basic setrab cooler mounted between the IC and Radiator however looking at going something similar to the below mounted offset on the passenger side with the biggest cooler (PWR or similar) that will fit and ducting to suit.

Any recommendations on alternatives or kits?  

 

Cheers,

I've used setrab cores and found them good.
Directing air over the core will help massively as have found improvements of 5-10 degrees with ducts/shrouds. 
if still daily/street car grab a sandwichplate/ oil block with a thermostat.

My solution to this was to get some of the grille mesh that you can buy from Autobarn etc (although I actually used some metal gutter guard from Bunnings) and make a piece to fit on the back side of the oil cooler. I put it on the back side and bent it to cover the sides also, for paranoia's sake. The bend around made it easier to attach too, although I can't remember exactly how I attached it and I can't go look until I can go home, which will be....next year.
