|Duratec oil cooler.|
Iím building a MNR VORTX with a tuned duratec, hopefully Iíll have around 230ish bhp, and itíll be a road legal track day car.
My question is, do I need an oil cooler? Itís got a wet raceline sump, and the old fiesta st150 oil filter mount heat exchanger thingy. Running this
requires fitting pipes and teeing into the coolant circuit which is a pain. Alternatively, I can buy and fit an oil cooler. Is it worth going the oil
cooler route, am I likely to see high oil temps on track without one? Iíve been looking at the thermostatic oil coolers, as I understand the oil can
run too cool with a non thermostatic one. I have a coolex water radiator with the fan on the engine side, so an oil cooler would have to go on the
front of my rad. Would a 16 row one be about right?
