Do you have a link I can follow to the right stuff I need? I don't really know much about oil coolers and gauges I've never installed one or seen one installed...

Just get whatever gauge you want in the correct size to fit in whatever gauge panel you are using. I used autometer 2 1/16 carbon fiber electric gauges and TurnKeys gauge panel. I used a B&M SuperCooler 70273 cooler. Then get your lines and fittings. 001.jpg

That is good info. Are the ports marked in & out on the adapter?

I only have the 2 port, if you get the 3 port I believe the sensor hole is smaller than the other two. Going to the cooler it really doesnt matter which is which, the cooler is non-directional but all you have to do is look at it and you can see which is the incoming and outgoing ports on the filter adapter. Make sure to mount your cooler with the fittings on the top side so you dont trap air.

Dont know if it was cheaper but my cooler is twice the size of the one in that kit and my lines are spiral braided hydraulic line which there is pretty much no chance in hell will burst or rub holes in or get cut.

That's good to know.
Was it cheaper for you to buy everything separate?
I've seen a whole kit for $240 but the oil cooler looks really small.

Adapters what $100, cooler was about $62, and then whatever lines and fittings. Probably about the same but you get the bigger cooler if you do it yourself.

What do you mean that the cooler is non-directional? Does it flow cross vehicle or fore-aft? Cross vehicle flow may not matter but fore-aft flow will make a difference. If the cooler flows fore-aft and the connections are reversed than you can lose 10-15% cooling performance.

Yeah your cooler looks bigger than the one in the kit. It fits in between the plastic grill and radiator with no problem?

No you will have to trim the inside of the grill to fit but youd have to with any cooler.

Um, what? The oil can flow either way through the cooler. Doesnt matter which fitting you use on the cooler for the inlet or outlet.

Since your fittings are on the top of the oil cooler where do you run you oil lines. To each side of the radiator?

Depending on the flow pattern of the cooler it can matter. I am a engineer at a engine cooling and climate control company. The company I work for manufactures engine cooling and HVAC systems for cars and trucks for all major OEMs.

Lol, ok thats cool. Let me make it easy, it says in the directions you can use either port for inlet/outlet it doesnt matter. Each side of the cooler is identical to the other.

Why won't the pressurized oil push the air out?
It would be nicer to have the lines going down.
