After I removed the fascia again, I measure to see if it would fit between the radiator and intercooler, it won't.

I then found a nifty little spot it just fits into above the intercooler. I can use the setrab bracket but make other brackets for it to attach to but most likely I will use some aluminum stock I already have and just make a couple of holes on top under where the fascia goes and attach it there. There is just enough room for the fittings and hoses to clear the intercooler. I will probably also get rid of my SS on the grille so there is straight airflow through the cooler.

Thanks for all the pix!

How thick is your SC intercooler? I was going to offset mine behind the bumper, hanging down. For me it is all pretty empty back there, but that's probably because of my intercooler being thin and hanging off the top of the rad.

Could you post the dimensions of the oil cooler you are trying to mount? It would help me get a sense for it. Is that a 13 row cooler? maybe 6 inches high by 13 or 14 wide?

The intercooler is 4" thick. The oil cooler is around 14" wide end of bracket to end of bracket. (core is 12"), 5" high (not including fittings) and it is a 16 row cooler.

Here's what I ordered from Improved Racing:

1 x Setrab 25-Row Series 9 310mm Oil Cooler (50-925-7612), Adapter Fittings -10AN

1 x Low-Profile Thermostatic Oil Cooler Adapter for LS-Series Engine (EGM-1012), Adapter Fittings -10AN

1 x Setrab Oil Cooler Mounting Bracket (ABKT), Cooler Core Width 310mm

4 x Fireflex 7/8" (-10AN) Fire-Retardant Hose Sleeving (FF-10)

1 x RaceFlux AN 120-Degree Swivel Hose End Fitting (DS-120), Fitting Size -10AN

3 x RaceFlux AN 90-Degree Swivel Hose End Fitting (DS-090), Fitting Size -10AN

15 x Aeroquip Startlite Lightweight Racing Hose, -10AN (FBU1000)

2 x Adel Mounting Clamps, -10AN Hose (7/8" ID) (HCP-1000)

4 x Adel High Temp Mounting Clamps, -10AN Hose (7/8" ID) (HCP-1001)

Might start install this weekend if it all shows up in time.

Going to switch to a racing oil, too. I do road courses, not so much drag strop. Any suggestions?

Pete

Sounds like a DIY thread in the making. Take lots of pics. What did all of that set you back, if you don't mind me asking?

Yep - that's my plan. Will post plenty of pix. Had a lot of help from others so far thinking about this and figuring out what I'll need, so happy to contribute back how it all worked out.

Total cost $743. Higher than I had hoped but ended up going with a bigger cooler than I thought and the temp-controlled adapter was key with a big cooler. All more expensive. But, I learned a while back not to chinz on stuff. When I'm on the track I don't want to worry about whether saving $100 on parts is going to bite me in the ass.

Nice job. I posted a few months back looking for anyone who had done this. I was going with the Katech adapter but I like the one you found more. Thanks for posting.

After the supercharger install, this one is going to be easy

In terms of actual oil temp results, I won't have factual data to back up the impact of doing this. I don't have a real temp sensor on my engine now, and the GM one as we now know is just an estimate. I have been on the track though and an instructor pointed out my oil temps were over 300 at one point on the GM sensor. Gonna get worse with the SC.

But having asked a few vendors and kicked around a bit, it seems that this will probably knock 20-30 degrees off the oil temps. Wish I had a way of validating it all. The adapter comes with a temp probe port but I am not going to buy a sensor. Can add one later if I feel like it.

Rewiring stock oil temp gauge?

Has anyone ever thought of rewiring the stock oil temp gauge down in the 4-pack to work off an aftermarket oil temp sensor?

I'd be interested if it's possible. Was already thinking of adding a separate oil temp gauge to the oil cooler and displaying in on one of the 2 analog inputs on my dual Aeroforce pod gauges.

I'll have to post up pics of my oil cooler that RMCR in Colorado Springs, CO installed. Pretty sweet (Rocky Mountain Competitive Research). Added a rear M6 tranny cooler too.

Show us! Need pix of cooler and adapter, and if you can show where they routed the hoses that would be really helpful too!

My order is arriving soon, might be able to start my install this weekend.

Starts at post #104 of my "needing to be updated" build thread

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...85#post6188285

Also, here's an optional place to mount the dual pass engine oil cooler for those with limited space. It's on a 1000+ RWHP Vortech build (1085 I believe)
It's mounted horizontally behind the radiator.... and not your average radiator - a Ron Davis dual pass. The guy tracks his car in I believe Arizona.
