    twin oil cooler system

    I saw this on another thread and thought it was very interesting. I believe this is a prototype from Evolution Racewerk.

    It is interesting, but who makes it?

    The only thing I am wondering is, are the brake ducts cut off?

    Thats easy to do, I'll probably do that during the summer if my temps go above 240 during daily driving, right now I average 220-230 but the temps outside are still in the 70's or lower,
    Here is my drivers side oil cooler, and like I said if I run to hot on the summer, I might add another one on the passenger side.

    nice looks 'custom'. like a DIY. which cooler is that? did you notice a difference over the stock cooler? or did you never have one?

    I was referring to your front page, not the forums. Where do you get off?

    Well, the front page is an extension of this same software that provides this layout. It should feel natural, maybe I'm just used to it?

    Chill out, smile.

    The forums have a slightly cleaner layout than the front page IMO.

    Hard to smile when you're being a prick for absolutely no reason - I posted constructive criticism....you just turned it into a spitting match. So enjoy Click here to enlarge

    With all due respect, other way around.

    Glad to hear the forums have a slightly cleaner layout than the front page.

    Seems like a good enough idea. Although, when you start running dual oil coolers and running long oil cooler lines with a stock oil pump that has not been modified, you increase the risk of lowering your oil pressure volume. This is especially important at engine start up. The best way to test if the stock oil pump can support this mod is to monitor oil pressure values before and after the install on the inlet and outlet side of the oil filter housing.

    At engine start up the the oil thermostat is closed so the pressure is not affected, is when the oil starts to get hot that the thermostat opens that the oil flow starts to flow tru the oil coolers, and by that time you are already running good oil pressure, so I dont understand why oil pressure would be a problem.
    These cars run too hot in my opinion, on my e39 M5 my oil temps would stay at around 210 constant, so I don't understand why wouldn't we benefit by running cooler, specially for the turbos.. come the summer Im really thinking about adding another oil-cooler to see if I can bring the temps down to 210-220 constant and a max of 230-235 during hard runs....

    Very nice idea! IMO, the n54 motor needs it because they tend do run warmer than most others, oil temp wise.
    This is my signature... Click here to enlarge

    Very good idea but i would measure the oil pressure before and after.

    I like this idea and would appreciate the DIY information. I just got the cp-e FMIC which includes an extra oil cooler on top of the core. I am considering running another one in series.

    Oil pressure is always affected when you begin to increase the volumteric area and distance of travel for oil flow. Many stock oil pumps need to be shimmed properly when doing a mod like this, since this help negate the drop in oil pressure. Now, that doesn't mean the stock pump is not capable of supporting the increase in volume, it just means you need to test it first. Stock oil pumps are capable of supporting the volume they are designed for, and even have enough flow to support a descent size oil cooler. Although, when you start adding two oil coolers and long oil lines to feed them, that's when it beomes a touchy situation. As I said before, the only way to tell if the oil pressure is not afftected at all is to measure oil pressure on the inlet and outlet side of the oil filter housing.
