Oil cooler sizing



  182
Looking for an oil cooler to support enough cooling for my 182 doing trackdays. What size would you recommend?

Thanks

Take it your going to run a thermostatic sandwich plate with the cooler? Over cooling oil can be just as bad as over heating oil.

If you think you really need one, then a 13 row will be fine or even a 7 would do. IMO of course.

But I really wouldn't bother.

Do you run a cooler on your race car Tony?

We didn't until this year, but we have one of those cup racer ones, think it's off a Ren 5.

It has the coolant runing through it, so it warms up quicker, it looks like a sandwich plate with two hose connections coming off it.

I'll try and find a picture.

Ordinary ones are very vulnerable at the front of the car, we have seen so many go pop, then it's race over.

This works fine.

Similar to a laminova then, pretty sure my 197s like that
