Someone (like me) might have made a few posts about oil cooler adapters at the block and the rubber hose issues when they OD'd on Viagra.

Search Make/Model: enter yours
Do a keyword search eg: "oil cooler" or "der-15752" for the kit in question
click the "search within results" bubble and click the magnifying glass.

you should see a list of what summit has that is compatible with your vehicle or nothing if there is on compatibility with the part you queried.

I don't know for mobile devices, but it should be similar.

Summit sold me injectors for a tbi instead of a tpi once and insisted it was the correct part and had assured me it was a tpi injector. That was in 99 so I haven't called em in a while.... I usually just order

I'm having trouble finding a sammich plate that is thermostatically controlled so I don't overcool. Plenty of tranny coolers have this built in too making it unnecessary to have elsewhere but I'm not finding that in dedicated oil coolers.

As discussed previously it would probably be a bad idea to use the stock tranny cooler in the rad as an oil cooler so I'm guessing I shouldn't use a bm cooler like the one on the crown vic


...which has a date w retirement from family car duty on the horizon, which means my second turbo build will be a vertical setup through the hood on that lol

But yeah that part on further scrutiny isn't thermostatic. It just comes w a t switch for a fan if u mount one

B&M small tranny cooler is the same EXACT unit as used for engine oil cooler like I had.

Need more details on what you are doing....

Getting ready for a tiny turbo and road trips. I have to drive to thunderhill the 19th and would have liked to have gotten a cooler installed before the trip but times running short

I might just rob the cooler off the crown vic then since were getting another car next week if that will work, just loop the lines and call it a day

Did you use the mocal or mishimoto?

That seems like it could be pulled off in a week if I order like tomorrow.

Until this revelation I had resigned myself to just changing the oil and calling it good enough for a 10 hour 3k rpm cruise w a medium load and 2 ppl. We gotta go through a gnarly hill at the Oregon California border after hours on the highway ...and I really wish I had a nicer margin of safety than just fresh Mobil conventional 1040

the mocal with the banjo bolts, but call them and check for stock if you're on a schedule. it was backordered when i bought one. only took couple days to ship, i assume they just needed the fittings.

The cooler in the cv is is supposed to be thermostatically controlled I think....so I may be able to cheap out safely and get a plain adapter.

Now looking into a temp gauge just in case my memory is no better than my Google luck and it's not temp controlled
