Nope, but they don't look bad though, and they are the same btw. First one is a bit cheaper for the same thing. If it were me, I wouldn't buy that generic stuff, look for something a bit more reputable, especially dealing with the oil system. I can see in the pictures, the pieces have imperfections in them, alot. I would say that it would work, but idk about the quality of it.

Yeah I want to get a relocation kit, but idk, the oil filter isn't really that bad to get at, just really tight.

"Thinking" is good mmmkay ;)

You have 2 options
1) Fit a large trans cooler plumbed into the pressure based cooler circuit

2) Fit a full flow system.

1) Will work fine for moderate power but keep in mind that being pressure based it's going to take longer for the Oil to get to operating temp as it bypasses more the thicker/colder/higher pressure the Oil is.

2) If plumbed with quality components and large enough lines and a T Stat gives a great self regulating system that aids the Cooling in the engine as GTE's use squirters to transfer the under piston crown heat to the pan.

RX-7 oil cooler FTW. The thing is huge, has a built in thermostat, and I got one from a scrap yard for about $60 or so. Not entirely sure how I'm going to install it yet since the entire front of my car is currently sitting on the worktable in my garage but I'm sure I'll figure something out.

Let us know how that works out with the RX7 cooler. I know i'll have to look into something like this aswell and have been postponing it like forever, but with a paintjob around the corner, i might aswell start tackling this too.

It is HUGEEE. It has to go above the intercooler or in front. there just isnt any room for it and the fittings alone cost $40 to thread an/npt fittings into the metric threads.

i have one with the fittings that has been cleaned and tested for $50 shipped.

If you are looking for an oil cooler, why not get a used stock item off ebay?
I purchased the stock supra oil filter adapter and a supra oil cooler with the metal lines of ebay. once I figured out how to install the oil cooler in the stock location, it was s a snap.

Well most of us are looking to upgrade the oilcoolingsystem, so buying a stock supra cooler from ebay or anywhere else doesn't really make sense.

If the cost of 2 fittings bothers you, I don't think this mod is for you...
