    as the title states im looking into buying myself an oil cooler (finally) thought it would be a good idea to see what you guys are using and where you got it from, prices and how you rate it, the cars used as a daily and i hit up qr as much as i can afford for the drift days/nights, im running basic mods, 4age bigport mild cams, extrators, thermo fan etc, my oil gets bull shit hot when driving in traffic and whilst drifting on track (100-120 degrees)


    so yea.....go!!!!!!!!!!
    stay classy

    basically, you want serek, mocal or setrab.

    earls is made by one of those brands. but theyre basically the "legit" brands.

    and if you can, you want it with - 10 fittings already on it. be careful not to get one with stupid inverted flare fittings.

    you want either a female tapered thread, or a male AN -10.

    -8 is too small.

    there are also some chinese cores, which are ok.

    and then there are the chinese knock off universal kits.

    these are sorta ok too, they work, but the lines are ugly and stupidly long, and you can building yourself a custom set up, for hardly any more money, with hot as AN fittings, and perfect length lines.

    and then there are the jap kits

    which are as awesome as it gets. but probably too expensive now.

    does that grex kit use speedflow/earls fittings?
    some look like they are but the 90 bends off the cooler don't.

    Haven't used mine yet, but I've installed a B&M Supercooler onto my AE86. Awesome kit, can't give it enough praise. Not so much that it's shiny with braided lines and whatnot, and the cooler isn't even that big, but was cooler + lines and other install parts + remote filter adaptor (for the block) + remote filter housing + filter, for like $120 from Rocket Industries. No idea what price they are now, but has been the single most impressive product I've received so far, for the price. No idea what they are now, or if they still make the same one I got...
