i think so too - because when you are not racing the coolant/oil together will help bring the temperatures up quicker on cold start and still provide cooling at idle in traffic.SJ said:i would keep the factory oil cooler in addition to the aftermarket one.
that's true, but the coolant re-enters the head. i would rather keep the original circuit than blank off a branch.SJ said:remember the oil cooler lines and the coolant lines to the iac and tb have no effect on the actual cooling of the motor.
RSA Supra said:Search and you can find info. You can buy the NA coolant pipe coming off the back of the water pump and it doesn't wrap around the block, just goes to the heater core. IIRC, it is only $40-$50 and then you get the NA oil filter mount for about the same price. Problem solved. Call Jeff Watson or Curt and I'm sure they can send you the right parts.
Yes, it just doesn't have the cooler. And if you get the coolant pipe isn't running coolant around the block, then you'll just cap off the fitting on the driver's side. You can call Jeff Watson and he can describe everything to you and as well as sell it to you.turbo6speed said:I cant seem to find any info about the NA oil filter mount, can you go into details of what function it will serve if the gte coolant pipe around the block is removed?
Is it basically the filter mount without a oil cooler?
Also, what do you do with the extra coolant ports on the driver side if you do remove the coolant pipe?
cutting out part of the coolant loop might not hurt but only if that section of the head/block has a coolant path through it from another areaSJ said:in a pressurized system this reentry into the head makes no difference
