What sensors are you talking about? I will probably not be attaching any sensors to my sandwich plate. I will have "2" sandwich plates total. The OEM oil cooler one and then my glowshift one.

FYI, a 90* M18x1.5 -10AN hose end does exist. It's unreasonably expensive (~$60 shipped) but it only protrudes up by ~1" or so. If you mount the cooler a hair lower you can just use a 90* fitting, but NB guys who want to run the same cooler will be required to use the baller fitting.
It is good to know you are also running the cooler there and having no cooling issues.

The 90-degree M18x1.5 -10AN fitting was the one fitting that my local hydraulic shop did not have actually. I asked about it first. They had ones to go to -8AN, but no -10AN.

Well the stock rx-7 oil cooler has 2 tabs welded on one side. Since I can not weld I decided to use those if at all possible. If I was to flip the oil cooler around the fittings would either end up on the drive side of the car and I would need even longer lines, or the tabs I am using to bolt to would be facing outwards instead of inwards and would be useless.

Also the other end of the hoses do not have fittings on them yet. I have yet to purchase those. I knew I would would need the 90-degree fittings to come off the sandwich plate. So I had those ends installed. I figured once I had to oil cooler mounted for good I could figure out which fittings I needed and the exact length of the lines.

Sandwich plate installed.


Lines attached to the sandwich plate.


Lines currently run through the swaybar mounting bracket. Will this be safe? You guys have till noon tomorrow to tell me why I this possibly be bad.


How the lines look from inside.

Won't that interfere with the undertray? This is why I ran my lines like this:

Bad because they will saw through the bracket?

If you put some rubber on em though you will be fine.

Why take off intake for install? I guess you don't want to go under car.


Earlier, I was asking if you had a sandiwch plate for oil pressure and temp. I guess you have those somewhere else.

That is a good thing to check. I did not even think of checking under-tray fitment.

The lines will be covered in fire sleeve so I am not worried about sawing through the bracket.

It was easier to do from above and takes me less then 10 minutes to get off my intake manifold. I am also going to be routing spark and injector wires below it eventually so I needed it to come off for that.

I pick up oil pressure from the stock location on the block. I have an oil temp sensor in my oil pan. The sandwich plate actually has 2 spots for things to screw in for either temp or pressure.

only issue i see with your hose routing is if you need to pull the upper control arm on that side they will be in the way of removing the bolt.
only reason i say is i just pulled to do poly on my car. just a thought. other than that its a perfect spot.

FM's oil cooler & oil filter relocation kits use #8AN hose/fittings. I am not saying I would/will, but "because FM does" maybe you can too and get things more tighty.

Hustler has posted in several threads about how he had oil pressure problems when running -8AN lines, which then went away when he switched to -10AN lines.

Tonight I am going to try fitting the undertray on with the lines routed how I have them, and also try routing them how curly has his lines to see which way I like better. Then I guess tomorrow I will get the lines cut and the ends put on.

I don't mean to thread jack, but Lars, does all this mean that you'll be using Min's dyno spot at his next dyno day?

You can get a Mocal/Setrab/Earl's cooler half that size and be just as efficient. What are your oil temps? With no ducting I assume it's pretty fail.

Here's my glory:



It's ducted on the sides and uses the same chamber as the radiator and FMIC.

I don't live in Texas, I just need it to work reasonably well and keep the temps in check, not rocky mountain cold. Can't comment on temps, that's one of the next things I wanna do. Street vs. track, ducting vs. none. It's in a weird place. How to duct it is not obvious to me.

Why don't you think it's efficient? Where it is or the actual oil cooler? It was the cheapest one available, but miles above the eBay unit that sat leaking previously in the same spot. It allows as much air through it as a plate of steel would.

I had the same cooler previously, ducted, under the car, and still saw 280*f oil temps. then I borrowed one from a friend that I currently have at half that size, in the same duct, blocked-off the larger hole where I mounted it, and suddenly it was 230*f. I then moved it because I don't like putting oil coolers in a "rock scooper" under the car.
