Okay, you want to know where to mount an oil cooler, you want to know how to mount an oil cooler, you want why you are mounting it where, you temperatures, you install instruction, you want pictures? Well it is all in one place. Read this from the guys at MotoIQ.com. The did a project a while back and I have been following them closely for my own build. Okay here it is!!!!

It's a common price. For my BMW it's about $750 for a "competition kit" and about $995 for a 15-row stage 1 and $1400 something for a 20-row stage 2. For some reason people charge an arm and a leg for oil coolers

For mine, I paid 48 dollars for the oil cooler plus 35 for a 3 foot line and a foor foot steel braided line. Finally, paid a few bucks for the 10an connectors and the l brackets. In total it was close to 90-100 dollars.

I currently dont have a oil temp gauge but might consider looking into getting one. Being in Miami, I dont think I will have too many issues with the oil not reaching operating temps.

The Earl's oil cooler is 282 bucks, the sandwich is 40, probably another 125 in lines fitting, 60 for braided lines, 75 for the slim fan, Mocal sanwich another 100 so we have about 700 bucks for the MotoIQ set up. So a Ptunning kit for 800 is not out of line.

I believe it's 675$ and it has a thermostat. I agree it's expensive but it's a top of the line product.

Its on the passanger side of the car infront of the radiator. It sits right ontop of the intercooler bolted on with mounting points on the car. I took some pictures incase others might be interested. This weekend I will run the lines to the oil cooler. Once finished, I will be able to install my radiator cooling plate to cover the oil cooler. Let me know what you think
Hi rikhemi
Sorry to bump this thread, but I am planning to install 2 oil coolers in the same place you did: 1 for the engine oil, the other one for the Rotrex SC oil. Both will be 330mm long, and 10 row high I suppose. And they will be just on top of the FMIC.

What is your experience now with your installation ? does it work well ? does the oil cooler get some air flow in this location ?

Here is what I did today with folded flat aluminum profile and standard metal brackets.
Finishes are in progress: cut the squares flush, and paint all in black.

I would be wary of having a small oil cooler in terms of rows with engine oil. The cooler will become a restriction because the high flow of the S2000's oil pump will try and push all the oil through those narrow 10 rows on the cooler. More rows means less restriction.


The S2000 pump flows about 60 litres per minute so a cooler with fewer rows will cause some restriction.
