The different water pump outlet, the plug that goes into the block with a hose nipple on it, the hard heater hoses, brackets, etc are designed for an EJ, hence my comment that I think it would be risky to assume it would fit an EZ30R. I'd be willing to bet it won't fit.

I agree that oil coolers are good things, assuming the car is going to pushed in such a way that the additional cooling is necessary. For the EZ30R I think your only option is going to be an aftermarket setup. There have been a number of threads about oil cooler setups, so you should be able to find some good info here.

Yeah I wasn't sure what the method was the kit used for cooling. That clears it up and seems that it would be helpful if there was one made with the EZ's specs in mind. Guess getting a "simple" External oil cooler is the way to go. While not "needed" it will be nice to have one thing less to have on the brain for the future. Just one more thing on the parts list I guess. But at least with Link releasing the G4 soon my headache trouble shooting list dropped dramaticly. I was really afraid it was gonna be a lont time before a Standalone able to link right into the OEM(legacy's is being laid in) harness and run everything.
