So much discussion in my thread and I'm not even here to partake!

Almost all setrab coolers have an m22 port that uses o-rings or dowry seals to seal. Most of the 19 row series 6 oil coolers you see on eBay are circle track rear diff coolers. So all you need is an m22-an10 adapter.

Careful because most of them have cut off brackets though.

Concealer, my first fleabay cooler has been sacrificed to the horsepower gods, I drilled a hole in the core on accident.

Instead I found a nice circle track used parts seller that has 19 and 25 row oil coolers for really cheap. Let me buy mine and then I'll tell you all where to look.

I have spent the last few days on the phone with a lot of circle track guys and have learned more than I'll ever need to know about it haha.

I meant the one you linked directly that you told us to not buy from under you. I have a ton of extra -8AN **** already, including i think a plate and filter relocation housing. If you don't want that one, i'm going to grab it and do my setup for like.... a hundo out of pocket.

Go for it, but the new place I found has the ones with the ports on the same side for like 80$ shipped. Which makes it way easier to setup.

They have the same ones TSE sells. But used.

Used oil coolers make me nervous, because you don't know how many pounds of iron filings they come pre-filled with.

^^^This. I wouldn't put a used one on my 4000 dollar built engine....but I'm running a stock 1.6 so I couldn't care less .

But most of the suppliers I talked to won't sell pieces off wrecked or damaged cars, they basically are "mileages out" in a weekend of circle track racing. So they go on a shelf and a new one goes on the car.

New oil cooler:





25 row Setrab.

I got it at 2nd Chance Race Parts. Give them a call, he said he has about 6 more of the 25 row with all the brackets intact. Tell him Aidan sent you and you will probably get the same price I did. 19 rows were $65, 25 rows $75.

Concealer, the ports on the side make for super easy hose routing. Check out jeffs recent stuff.

Prototype hardtop side bracket.

Ever since rennenmetal stopped selling hardtop brackets I have been wanting to build my own. I'm going to be water jetting a bunch of these and doing another group buy thingy. Subscribers to my thread get first dibs

Had a good weekend in the bay area. Won a couple races, and ended up at a wine tasting/car storage warehouse. Sorry about the shitty pictures but it was pretty cool to see all these in person.

Cars of importance:

1972 Pantera
Ferarri Enzo
Cobrajet Mustang
Fake Ferarri 250GTO

And the cars in the bubble don't even get driven! Just started up every once in a while.

Attempted my first AN hose assembly this morning. The hose moved a little bit and I'm not sure if that is normal or if I need to redo it. Here is how much the mark moved while screwing in the fitting.

Moving a little is normal -- that looks about right to me, assuming you had it pushed on all the way to start with.
