Custom oil cooler and fan - where to get?

I am going to mount a small oil cooler with thermo fan on the back of the ute to cool the auto. I am sure I have heard of people buying a setup where you could get the cooler and thermo all in one package.

Anyone know where you can get these?

thanks

I looked here a while back:

http://www.performancecentral.com.au...jqua0ajpqglub7

but the consensus here was that it wouldn't withstand ZF pressures.

Thanks Simon, but I would prefer a nice smal square one.

So the next question would be.....what is the max pressure that the ZF works at?

You can get condensers in all sorts of sizes - as standard - off the shelf you would be able to get one about 250mm square.

According to the book, 100 psi at idle, 150 psi at 2000rpm, and the highest pressure in operation it lists is 150psi in D at full throttle take off.

It recommends a 0-300psi gauge is used for testing.

Ok, that sort of fits in with what I found out today. I was told about 115psi is what it runs at.

The unit that you had a link to at performance central is tested to 200psi so I that should be fine. I will look around but that one for $300 seems like a good buy

Here's the Earls catalogue
http://www.earls.com.au/dirlisting/E...20BRACKETS.pdf

They are tested to 175 psi, burst is claimed to be up around 350 psi.
A real cooler like this only needs to be half the size of a tube & fin cooler of the same heat rejection capacity.

Yep, fin and tube are so yesterday. They need to be like a coolant radiator or like a car radiator but with rectangular passeges and internal and external finning.
