Default Simple Oil cooler question?

I just bought this oil cooler:

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EA...L/?image=large

My question is, do I have to buy a sandwich adapter or just tap the lines
to the OEM oil cooler?

Dammit, I forgot about that. So I guess the Mocal 20mm plate then. DoI have to remove the entire OEM oil cooler unit to install the Mocal plate or just add this on top?

So you spent $300 on something and don't know step one of installing it? Please return it while you still can or this will end in super fail.

buy the sandwich adapter from the greddy kit...
its thermostatic and has 4 holes tapped...2 for your oil cooler and 2 extra for oil temp/pres/whatever.
any greddy dealer should be able to get it for you...M20x1.5.

^Im going to take a look at that even-though I think the Greddy kit does not have a thermostat.. Also do you have to remove your OEM cooler unit or will this take its place?

Even is you posted the actual product link and you paid 99 cents, I'd still say you need to return it. Research.....then buy. You are doing it the wrong way, which tells me you have no idea what it does, which tells me you don't need it, which tells me you will more likely than not install it wrong. Your car, your life though.

^Ok, mister. I know what an oil cooler does. You went off another tangent. Im doing my research by posting here also but, if someone has a great deal on a part right in your face you cant say Wait! I need to research that, I need to know how to install! No. So I bought it. Im not asking what it does. I know what it does. Im asking how to install it since I have never installed one. But thanks for posting your thoughts. I think it would of been better if you would just give some constructive input instead of telling me things I already knew. Anyways I do need it cause Im Autoxing. Thanks for your helpful feedback though.

What I'm trying to do is EDUCATE you and perhaps someone who plods along and reads this. Why would you need this? What are your coolant and oil temps as they stand this year? You don't need it because you are autocrossing as that's no reason to have one.

Just in case you actually did buy that one... 16AN lines are entirely too large and it's going to cost a fortune to hook it up. Just saying

I run the Greddy kit.
The sandwich plate does have a thermostat.
You attach it to the factory (hoakey cooler) as though it was an oil filter.
I also run a power steering cooler of my design which consists of an Earl's 10 row radiator and an fittings and lines. It is located in the passengers fender well.
I'm not going to explain my reasons for running these coolers and you do not have to either.
