what brand oil cooler adapter do you use between the block and the filter? i dont have the stock version from a spec c. I did some some company that sells one that has a built in thermostat that opens when the oil gets hotter than a given temp so it doesnt always use the oil cooler say when its cooler out.
The radiator/oil cooler combined unit fits into the same apature as the OEM radiator, its the same width and height of the stock item. There are two versions you can buy, either with OEM fans that fit straight on, or race fans for if you are not using Air con so only need a two wire fan system, so some of the RH fan cools the oil cooler if you are stationary with the fans running.

Water temps sit at 82 degrees C, even on track thrashing it for 20 minutes, the only time i see higher is when sat stationary and it just goes up to 88 degrees C where the fans kick in and bring it back to 82 degrees C.

I bought the whole package via Chevron Motorsport here in the UK, it was designed by them initially for the Time Attack cars i helped run with them, the cores are the same as i use in the Formula One cars i race prepare, so are very efficient.
