Hell Ya! that thing is a joke! With my custom setup my oil temps usually run cooler than my water temps anyway.....this is not a daily driver....... I also run a remote oil filter so I have a qt extra oil in the loop and the 5 feet of 3/4" braided hose acts more like a cooler than the stock water loop one ever would. I have an oversized custom radiator and the water box that the turbo feeds from that holds nearly 10x the stock box h20.

But at the same time in my daily driver ( 97 OBX w/03 WRX swap )I got rid of the oil cooler too. I have had zero issues with oil temps and I dont burn or use up oil more than 1/4-1/2 qt every 3k miles
