There's lots of threads here on oil coolers and the accompanying parts. The haynes is cheaper ($35 w/tstat) and I couldn't see any difference between it and the mocal I have now. I just went for the mocal because it had 1/2" npt ports to go with my fat lines vs. 3/8" on the haynes.

Try and pick up one with a thermostat in it. That way, oil will not flow through the cooler until it gets warm. Warm oil=less wear on your motor.

EDIT: okay i didnt realize how expensive they were but here's one from FM

I looked into doing a DIY Cooler and filter relocation, added up all the parts using cheaper Twistlock hose and A/N fittings.. ended up over 500.00. Decided to buy the Moss Motors relocation and cooler setup. Its like 250$

I bought it from this eBay seller. It was $39 new. He doesn't have any with tstat, and it looks like the prices are up since the no tstat unit is now $35.

I had/have less than $175: $70 for -10 AN lines (brass fittings), $40 cooler, $15 in adapters and $40 in the sandwich plate. The system upgrade with the mocal plate and extra large mercedes oil cooler will end up being $70 more. And I can sell the small cooler and Haynes tstat sandwich plate.

It shouldn't be anywhere close to that.

90 - Mocal w/tstat
50- Cooler - ebay ex Nascar.

Part # Description Price Qnty Sub-Total
410010 Premium Racing Hose. THE BEST! (Use Swivel Seal or Auto-Fit Hose Ends) 77.69 77.69
981611 Straight, Pipe Thread To A.N. Adapter 4.49 8.98
800110 Swivel-Seal Straight Hose End 9.99 19.98
809110 Swivel-Seal 90 deg. Tube Hose End 23.49 46.98
153.63

10 feet -10AN SS line, 2 -10AN to 3/8 npt, 2 -10AN straight fittings, 2 *90 fittings.

And you can get the lines cheaper on ebay. With fittings already on them.

That is 300$ for the BEST setup.

Where are those parts from? Summitracing? Earls?
Why is it better than the Moss cooler?
Thanks

Because you get a tstat, ss lines, a good cooler (you can find them for 50$ that have been used a few races that originally were 200$+) and awesome fittings.
