GTR-J is almost exactly the same as my setup.
If you put it in the front spoiler, dont forget that the air has to get out somewhere .....
Re Robs comment, drift cars dont do lap after lap on the redline ....as long as track cars do.
If you fit something too big you can always block off 50% of the fins ...

Me too, it works too well though, oil temp on the road never gets above 80 and highest I saw on track was 95, I have it covered most of the time

By far the best all round system we've used is the heat exchanger in the bottom tank of the radiator as per the R34 Stealth Bomber, oil temps come up quicker and I've never been able to get the oil temp more than 10 deg higher than water temp, they are compact, simple and have short lines, no worries with stones etc either.

The downside is you have to buy a 90mm thick radiator at the same time and although they seem expensive initially, once actually in the car, they work out well against buying a big rad and oil cooler and installing both properly.

Mine's on the passenger behind the bumper. I've got a Trust 13 row with the air diversion plate. I've also got a yanack front bumper with a huge mouth right in front of the oil cooler so it lets plenty of air through.

Mine is mounted horizontal under the front offset slightly to the passenger side.
Got an alluminium scoop/shield that forces ram air through the cooler.

my car is a 34 but was built by nismo/omori factory so guess they know what there doing!

Mine is mounted on the passenger side with carbon fibre duct etc with vents on the rear of the inner mud guards to let the air back out.

Anyway this is how they mount on the z-tune and s1 cars.

Pics are crap sorry!

Well before I stacked the car into a fence post it had a Nismo Oil cooler and Air cond combo.

The AC radiator was about 3/4 of it's normal size. and the oil cooler was right next to it....Thanks to being an idiot I don't have that now.

I now have it between the intercooler and radiator.

Now with the new HKS BOV kit you can remove your old bovs and pipes and place your oilcooler with plenty of room on the drivers side.

I couldn't vote in the above poll because my oil cooler is mounted horizontally below where the A/C pump is fitted. It gets fed cold ram air from a slot in my splitter and the cooler is fully shielded against damage from underneath. My oil filter is also mounted low so access for oil changes is very easy.
