I installed a B&M supercooler last year. I used a sandwich adapter form Hayden, -10 line. It dropped the oil temp from about 230 to 200 during the summer. Oil temp stays about 180 during the colder months. You just have to be creative on the line routing and cooler mounting. I also put heat wrap on the lines where they ran close to the exhaust.

What makes you think you need one? If you don't need one, it will do more harm than good.

With a handle like 1MEANV, I'm sure he needs one :D

I am thinking about an oil cooler myself, as I have a Maggie soon to be installed and possible track days in my future.

A SoCal Corvette tuner told me this was the choice adapter to use:

Anyone used it?
Does it actually mount as shown in the pic?
