    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.

    I think Davies Craig do a complete kit for these. You could also try a wrecker and see whats avail from say a Gen3 Commode or the like.

    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
    Thanks,

    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.
