Cut Bumper with Oil and Power Steering Coolers( Suck it 56K)

Post by Lance » Sat Jun 23, 2007 4:12 pm

Here's my latest finished projects. Due to my coolant temps with no oil cooler at my last lapping day, a change was needed if I wanted to beat on the car all day and have peace of mind.

First the coolers
For oil I decided to use a stock FC RX-7 oil cooler because of the size and wide use by many other road racers and it was available from a local junkyard. From some measuring it comes out to be 202ci, which is pretty big in comparison to other stock coolers and most aftermarket ones.
All fitting are Russell and lines are -10 stainless

Time to cut and fit the oil cooler. The best place to mount it would be directly behind the bumper support above my intercooler. I wanted to keep the bumper support because the car is still daily driven and wanted to cut it in a way to serve as ducting.

Now the oil cooler in place

My two longest lines, third short line was already in place

Relocation placement

Lines to block adaptor

I decided to use a Hayden four row transmission cooler for my power steering
Here it is in placed infront of the radiator

Since I have a JGS kit and no PS relocation bracket I had the resivour ziptied to my intercooler pipe and 2in from the compressor housing = not good. So I went ahead and moved it to the corner of the engine bay by the clutch master cylinder.

Completed

We are having a track day on the 30th and hopefull my temps will be more stable then the last event.

Enjoy

If you look really hard, you can see the top of the cap, he took a weird angle photo but its a manual and if you read the text he says "Next to the clutch MC"

Yeah it's a manual, just a weird angle picture but you can see the cap and the hardline too. I planned on reinforcing the support but I'm not sure how much longer this will be a daily driver. Once it isn't she's getting completely gutted.
