Default FM oil cooler kit

Keith I noticed on the FM website,you now carry a complete oil cooler kit.

Do you have any pictures of how the oil cooler is mounted on the steering rack,how many rows is the cooler and what are the dimensions of the cooler?

....and what? all I see are springs and a proportioning kit.

The group buy list does not give me the answers I'm looking for.

y8s is asking another question on top of your own.



The bracket design varies depending on the year of the car, thanks to different steering rack mounting and PS cooling loops. 13-row cooler in the common 9.5" x 4" (not including end tank) size.

If there's enough interest, we might be able to arrange a group buy on these.

Keith,so the total length of the oilcooler from end to end is 13'' long? Do you have the exact part number for the Setrab oilcooler?

No worries,I know what you mean.I have been waiting for someone to finally sell a complete oilcooler kit that's decently mounted,without ripping apart half the front of the car to install.

I'm not lazy,I'm just sick of the DIY route nowadays.

Is there sufficient airflow down there if the undertray is in place?

The exact part number? Man, you guys need details.

It's a Setrab A13F22. You can buy the cooler only from FM for $115, or from Racer Parts Wholesale for $144. Hmm...

Lines are AN-8.

There's less airflow if the undertray is in place, although there still is air running through the cooler. You can do a little ducting work if you want colder air.

Now that I look at that part - costs have gone up dramatically since we last set the price in 2005. We're going to have to raise the price on it I'm afraid.

But it won't affect the price of the complete kit, as that was calculated using the current costs.
