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:

I thought every model FC had an oil cooler, I'll look next time I'm home just to be sure. If so, I have an '86 parts car if anybody needs one. :)

why would anyone hook this up? most cars have stock engines and their oil will never ever ever be that hot it needs to be cooled.
If you do decide to hook it up make sure you use a thermostatic sandwichplate or else your oil will never reach the proper operating temperature.

if you do hook up an oil cooler on a street car I would make sure to have a thermostat in there so your oil doesnt run too cool. I know the Greddy adapters have them built in. Also not so sure I would hook up a junk yard oil cooler to my engine, who knows what could be in there. Metal shavings, rust, raccoons? lol

not too hard to find. rx7club should have some I would think. Would be cool if no one will FARK with it. hate for some redneck with a pocketknife to leave you stranded in some parking lot

another note, the stock fc oil coolers have thermostats in them. so if you want to hook it up, there you go.
