What have people had good luck with? I need to install my oil cooler to keep the oil temp diwn when running hard, but have a strong feeling it's got too much cooling capacity and will overcool under laid back running conditions. I'm looking for one that I can install in the lines to bypass the cooler until the oil temp gets iup to 190 or so. Thanks!
The low end of the oil temp is around 210. Keith Eickert thermostatically sets their low end around 215. Look at their oil filter/thermo unit. Yeah it is costly, but hey, it's a high performance boat. What did you expect?
Much cheaper (1/4 the price) than the KE and they do the exact same thing. I have installed many of the permacool and a few of the sandwich style. They work great, do the same thing as others , and give you a few hundy extra for gas. You can also get a little cleanr of a install with them.
Already have a big-block factory cooler (rebuilt, tanked and pressure tested) and remote filter set-up shot in fullthane to match my engine colors. Just needed to choose a thermostat / bypass unit and have a couple hoses made so I can locate them where i want to easily...
