By the time I finish writing, you'll see how the oil radiator is not really that expensive.

I did have doubts about reliabillity, but have been running my setup for more than 1.5 years now and I think I can advise for it.
I have not had any track day with my engine yet though.

Don't even think about putting a used oil radiator on your engine. I have a brand of new, cheap, OEM fitting radiator that works. A used radiator, just like a used cooler can bring debris into your engine's oil and kill it.

Hey, those Sti 6 pot brakes used to be incredibly expensive, I hope you got a good price.
I just bought a simple oil cooler for transmissions and engines from amazon and fixed it on the front of my radiator, only cost 50$ and works great.

I have tracked my motor and the thing just loves abuse, and the BB turbo really gives great response. It is just like any other factory motor as long as you take care of it. I have no doubts that in a daily driver it will go 200K.
