    Oil Cooler??

    Is anybody running oil coolers on their FI Tegs? If so i would like to see some pics and/or ideas on them. I was reading that the turbo guide recommends using a thermostatic bypass valve, which diverts the oil from the cooler until it gets to a certain temp. I understand what this is used for, but how do you hook it up? Just concerned about my engine life, thats all.

    hey i was just looking into oil coolers too. A few people told me that unless your driving really hard all the time your oil will get too cold.
    anyways i searched at honda-tech and came up with this

        Thats why you use that thermostatic bypass valve i was talking about. It doesnt let the oil go to the oil cooler until it reaches a certain temp. Because oil doesnt lubricated properly unless it is hot enough. Permacool sells them, but i just dont know how to hook it up.

            Yes, I'm running one. My oil temps were getting very high but the cooler took good care of that. I recommend getting one.

            The bypass valve should come with instructions, if it doesn't it will be obvious how to hook it up once you see it.
