So what oil cooler is recommended for an R33 V-Spec with the following spec: -

NISMO full S/S exhaust system incl. downpipes
Blitz induction kit with M's racing pipes
Decatted
Chipped ECU running 1 bar
HKS hard pipe kit

Basically what are other ppl out there running and are you happy with it.

Also mounting points, I was actually hinking behind the grille???

And lastly what is the max. oil temp without oil cooler and with.

And how much should I expect to pay for the oil cooler and is it worthwhile having one.

Thanking you in advance

It depends on if you are going to fit it yourself or get a garage to do it for you.
Japanese kits with a remote oil filter mount are around £750 + fitting.
Abbey do a Mocal kit. Not sure on the price though.
Mine is a home made mocal kit and I fitted it infront of the Rad.
Temps while running on the dyno before the oil cooler was 101c and after was 80c.
Yes it is worthwhile especially if at some point you are gong to put it on the track.
Hope this helps
Best regards Alan :D

I've got the 15 row HKS unit located behind the radiator in my R34. After installation, oil temps are generally stable between 76-80 degrees C in most street driving conditions. Although not cheap, its definitely a worthwhile mod, particularly if you are going to be upping the power or doing some extended high rpm work!

Cya O!
