Oil cooler problem

On the way to the track this weekend my turbo y-pipe shifted, it was completely my fault because I didn't re-torque it after a few heat cycles.

Anyway, when it shifted it rubbed a hole in my oil cooler and it started leaking water. I noticed it leaking while at a gas station so the car never got hot and I wasn't going to let it get that way. I pulled some old school tricks out of my hat and poured half a tin of pepper in the radiator and the leak stopped. I took the car to my mother-in-laws house and pulled it apart, JB Welded where the leak was coming from, and did a flush on the cooling system. There were no leaks during my track time or the 250 miles home.

Anyone have any idea where I can pick one up or have one that they would like to part with for a reasonable price?

Thanks
