Yep, I drive it in traffic, but not yet with the oil cooler. I have no idea about any heat soak yet. There are no lines hooked up to it yet; I was just test fitting yet. I can’t claim responsibility for the brackets. I’m working with the owner of B-Line Motorsports to see how/if their kit fits the APS DR 525 piping; they’ve been testing it for a year+ with Perrin intercoolers, but, until me, not with APS. When I do actually start using it, I’m going to put a surface thermocouple on it and one in the output flow right off the core. That should help me determine if there is any heat soaking. But because of the lower thermal density of it compared to a TMIC, and extra air space around it, I’m inclined to think it wouldn’t be a significant issue… we’ll see, however.
