Ok,so, i found an inline oil cooler to cool the oil to your charger. I would just splice the current oil feed line, and connect it to the cooler, and then continue it on to the charger. I am planning on running an oil cooler as well, but, I mean, cooler is better, but is this overkill?
Also, i found a oil filter relocation kit, cuz, as we all kno, the oil filter is the easiest part to change on the corrado right. is this worthwhile or do i have the opportunity to starve the engine of oil? thanx guys. getting ready for the new motor

Re: Oil cooling q's (vdubin90)

I would NOT run an oil cooler inline with the feed to the charger. That oil line is really small. An oil cooler should be plumbed with at least 3/8" lines. 1/2" would be ideal. You wouldn't get any meaning full flow with the tiny oil feed line to the charger
If you are going to relocate the oil filter run the out line to the filter then to an oil cooler then back to the adapter on the block.

Re: Oil cooling q's (thetatau87)

I have an oil cooler on my Golf. I have had to cover it up due to the cold weather UKside at the moment. I used to go to about 120 degrees c on the motorways at 80-90. Without the cardboard, in summer, it is 80 deg C max. The cold ambient,5 deg C, stops it getting to 70!!
The water temp drops right off too. This is a cause for concern at the moment for me. I think the ECU never sees a warmed engine.
If you rag your beloved often, live somewhere hot or have a chip and pulley I think you can't go wrong.
My kit came from http://www.thinkauto.com for about £120/$160? If you want to delete the heat exchanger, and why keep it? You will need a few water hoses to make a neat job.
I might take some pics if you are interested. If it warms up a bit!! http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

with a thermostatic oil plate for the cooler you should never need to cover your oil radiator like that.
I guess you might consider getting a new sandwich adapter.

Bingo! Give that man a cookie.
Hall motorsport sells an adapter with a thermostat to bypass the cooler until oil temps get up to 180F.

Re: Oil cooling q's (virgilsg60)

I think an engine oil cooler for a corrado is a must. Heat kills HP. It's a good thing to look at if you doing a motor project. My oil stays at 180F all the time. I bought a generic kit for $80.00.
