    Default 4AGE Oil System

    Hi all, I know this is going to be a stupid question for all you guys in the know, but I'll ask it anyway. Where does the tube that comes out from the oil filter housing attach to? It would seem perfect for an oil cooler but don't know where to plumb it back to. The motor was a FWD converted to RWD. The car is being built as a track car and is coming along slowly. The rear end is out for building at the moment 4.11 mini spool borg warner out of a pintara. Regards, Glenn

    FWD cars have oil coolers.... grab one off an ae82 and use that or buy one.

    Or replace the oil plate thingy with a 16v / 20v one without the cooler.

    The factory fwd samwich plate has a pressure valve within that diverts oil to the cooler once a certain pressure ie rpm is reached.

    You could run it either with the very basic factory cooler or an aftrmarket cooler core but

    Much better to get rid of it and run a proper thermostatic plate that will achieve full flow once oil is to temp and a decent cooler core.

    Thanks for the reply's guys. If I go the other way and decide not to use an oil cooler, can I just block this tube off?

    ill assume ur talking about the sandwich plate plate?


    there is a return located on the sump, can just drill a hole and put a nipple for the oil to return too.
    Otherwise u can remove the sandwich plate, but if ur ganna be thrashing the motor might as well keep the oil cooler
