    boso style oil coolers

    Im having a tough time with this for some reason. Finding oil coolers isn't hard, do it all day long haha, but finding that "right" one for that perfect external look is tough.

    The problem I have is I don't know if they have a japanese translation I don't know like "tsurikawa" plus I don't know of any specific brands so its a little frustrating looking.

    Any info would be sweet, thanks gents!

    Yeah, everyone uses the FC part.

    I'm debating whether or not I want to do this. It looks gangster, but I'm afraid punk kids will cut the hoses in a parking lot. I could just make it non-functional, but I'm ideologically opposed to doing this.

    If it helps, a lot of people who use them don't hook them up. :P

    You could always use stainless braided hose? At least make it a little harder to cut? :mrgreen:

    im going to have to do that, i always assumed they were hooked up and functional hahaha. i dont have a car that it would even look good on, but if i did i would be afraid of people cutting the hose too...if it was hooked up lol
