I'm looking for a good aftermarket engine oil cooler kit for my 2011 WK2 Overland 5.7.
Reason: Engine Oil goes up to 240°F when driving up the Sierra and up to 260°F when towing.
I know there are plenty of aftermarket options out there but none of them seems to be specific for that vehicle/engine so I'm worried about fitment. Does anyone have good experience with specific engine oil coolers?
You do a sandwich adapter plate.
Basically it spins onto the filter and has 2 threaded fittings on it that you could plumb up and route a extra cooler.
Example Motor-Oil sandwich plate-- OIL FILTER.
your oil filter now spins onto the plate and not the Block.
Derale and B&M are great companies.
I would recommend something thermostatic tho.
you don't want the cooler having full flow when it's 10 F out.
