I parts-washed my oil cooler and it is starting to scare me that I can't get all the fluid back out. I didn't spin a bearing or anything, but the cooler was pretty grimey. Is there any way to just not use it and run an aftermarket cooler instead?
Obviously the coolant lines can just be bypassed. Has anyone made a way to attach a thermostatic sandwich plate straight to the block?
EDIT: Found my answer. Part number 15018AA050. Oil feed pipe from a 2.5i.
