Certainly is Gary! We are in the process of developing a kit for 06-07 vehicles along with a slew of other Subaru parts.

Numerous neat products on the way, thanks for asking!

Sounds good, I will be in touch. Maybe we can test fit both the top mount and oil cooler at the same time if its availible by then? your more then welcome to keep my car for a few weeks if need be.

Sounds great Gary thanks! I just forwarded this information to our production team that handles the test fit scheduling.

Would love the opportunity to test out the 06/07 kit on the track!

I will keep you in mind when we get further along with the project. Track data is always a great thing to have.

Thanks

Hey John,

From the reading and the pics (which are kind of small), it looks like a simple sandwich adapter plate; however from the data, it looks as though you are now making the oil system non-thermostatically controlled. Is this a correct assumption?

What are the line and fitting sizes? I ask in regards to pressure drop at elevated RPM. Do you have any such data?

Interested in one for my built but daily-driver bugeye but won't buy it if it's non-thermostatic. I do want to limit how cold my oil gets.

Thanks,
Micah

Whichever oil cooling solution I end up implementing on my STI, I will definitely be using a thermostatic sandwich plate, as I don't want to resort to foil over the cooler or something whenever not used on the track.

...or even seasonal 'adjustments' to block offs on the cooler. I picture the old semi's with their zip-up grill block off's for the winter time.

I really am interested but want a thermostat on it. Anyone running a street car should.

Good comparison.

Agreed.

Mishimoto, where will the 06/07 kit mount? The lower part of the front bumper would be best for airflow, I believe. But, for the front mount crowd, behind the upper grill ought to be an alternative spot. Probably require moving the horns, a minor detail.

Micah,

Thanks for inquiring about the kit. You are correct that this kit is non thermostatic. We are currently exploring options to release a thermostatic kit but I do not have an exact date for this.

The lines and fittings are -10AN, we experienced very little pressure drop shown in the engineering report. I see that we do not show pressure drop in relation to engine RPM and will speak with our engineers regarding this data.

I understand your concerns regarding the lack of thermostat, we should have a solution to this in the future.

Thanks
-John

We attempt to tailor our products to as many customers as possible and try our best to take into account FMIC setups. We have also moved horns for at least one of these direct fit kits and it was no issue. We should have a test fit coming up rather soon and I should have a better idea of our planned mounting location but I would guess we are going to try to mount this in the grill area to cater towards those with all intercooler setups.

It comes down to a collective decision by the engineers and production team. I will attempt to post some behind the scenes footage when we perform the fit.


Thanks to all for the questions! Feel free to ask any others.

Thanks for the response John! I look forward to updates on the thermostatic set up.

Our oil cooler kit is mounted in the upper portion of the grill. The entire cooler is above and behind the OEM crash bar. If your front mount retains the crash bar then you should not run into an issue, although we have not tested this with every manufacturer.

Take a look at the install video at around 8 minutes in to get an idea of the space the cooler kit takes up.

Thanks

Could you simply release the total height of the unit? One can simply measure how far down that is and see if it clears their core

From the middle of the mounting holes in the radiator support to the base of the male 10AN fittings on the cooler is 163mm. This does not include the two fittings and stainless lines.

Will this still fit with a Spec C power steering cooler?

After doing some research, it does not appear that this will fit with the Spec C cooler. Our oil cooler mounts in the same spot that the Spec C cooler is located. If you would like to mount the Spec C cooler below our cooler, then it could work. But some custom brackets will need to be made to fit both our cooler and the Spec C cooler onto your car.

Once the car is turned off, does the oil stay in the cooler or does it drain back into the pan? I'm curious of what the correct way to check oil after the cooler is installed. I know its supposed to add .5 quarts.

Some of the oil will drain back into the oil pan. You are correct in saying you need to add .5 quarts to your system. It is recommended that you install the cooler, add half a quart, run the car for a few minutes, and then check the oil level and add more oil if necessary.
