That's exactly the setup I have on my Moostang.

Mocal, Setrab, Earl's, and Fluidyne all make very good stacked plate type coolers. They're all prety expensive. There are other brands (B&M, for example) that make less expensive stacked plate type or tube-and-fin tyep coolers. Take a look at Summit or Jegs or any of the various circle track racing suppliers (Coleman, Pegasus Racing, etc etc). Keep in mind that the cooler is only part of the equation. The sandwich adapter, hose, and hose fittings add up to a pretty good chunk of money.

I used the Tru Cool oil coolers from www.Racerpartswholesale.com, cheaper than Mocal, mounting tabs make it easier to install, and Nascar teams use them: https://www.racerpartswholesale.com/...ol_Oil_Coolers

New anti-clog design keeps maximum air flow through cooler at all times. Lightweight aluminum alloy is vibration proof. All coolers come with a built-in bracket and a 1/2" NPT fitting. High-tech coolers are so efficient and durable, major NASCAR® teams use them.
