    It is. Same one Fuzzy found on Ebay. uses and/or references the same part #. Also it worked fine on the street for the 2 weeks it was installed prior to the track day.

    Re: Mod progression/route? (for track/street)

    I've got one collecting dust in the garage, never got around to installing nor returning it for that matter.
    It was thrown in a box with no other markings except for a gold "Made in Taiwan" sticker.
    From what I gather Fluidyne used to make them in CA but now outsource some stuff to possibly Taiwan/China. In any event I wasn't comfortable not seeing it packaged in a Fluidyne box at least and the Made in Taiwan thing just made me throw it to the side...

    Welk lets not be too hasty. Can you not start the car and see the leak? It looks to me like it was leaking from around the hose clamps. Maybe use a better clamp? Or possibly two clamps? It would be nice to know exactly where it is leaking from first.

    I also bought it but haven't installed it yet. It is stamped Thermal Dynamics International with a U.S. patent number 5,881,803, made in Taiwan gold sticker. I emailed the company and gave the link to the ebay product for confirmation on their disclaimer about it being a genuine Fluidyne oil cooler. I'll share the results. I don't plan to install it until I decide what clutch to install - I like tearing my car apart for multiple mods/upgrades.

    I can tell you it is definitely not leaking from the hose connections those things are on very tight. I believe it is somewhere where all the cooler lines funnel back into one line.

    Ya, he said if i pay to ship it to him and they find that its defective, then they will replace it. I just bought derale cooler that's basically like the OEM style but a 4 pass and use that instead as i trust it more.

    If I recall correctly, my cooler came in an actual Fluidyne box.

    Ideally, they need to be adjusted such that, when your wheels are on the ground, they are dead vertical.

    I can't give you a more detailed answer than that because I don't know how low or high your V is riding. For me, that required cutting the square ends off the end links and shortening the threaded bolt slightly.

    for me @ 14" (1" drop from stock), measured from fender lip to center axle/wheel hub, adj. links are maxed out @ shortest length with preload on the sways. if you want no preload, you'll have to shave/cut them slightly depending how much you're dropped.
