    Uprated Oil Cooler

    As above, has anyone got one fitted? Looked at some kits and they look easy enough to fit, just wondered if the sandwich plate you get with it just re-routes the oil into the new cooler, do you need to block off the old one or remove it etc? Hope that makes sense!

    Any help appriciated, Ben.

    hi there, get a mocal sandwich plate and a 13row cooler 1mtr of oil pipe. keep the oe set up, just remove the oil filter and add the sandwich plate and fit the cooler in the space below the headlamp behind the bumper and fog lamp area. if you have brake cooling ducts cut a hole in the top so you can direct some air to it. job done!
    best of luck

    Haven't some people had problems sunning sandwich plates on the Mk4's due to the filter hitting the wishbone?

    i have heard that but i didnt have that problem!
    the best thing to do is space out the engine mount if it does hit the wishbone
