I'll likely end up putting an ugly looking pipe + filter into the pocket where the windshield washer reservoir lived.
Run a tube down to the washer reservoir area and feed it cold air, ideally.

Please tell me you have an oil cooler!

It's in the works, that pocket is where I wanted to put an oil cooler with a fan.

While more complex, you're better off running an oil cooler to the other side, so you can preserve that space for your intake air.

If you got the standard or similar intercooler, the GReddy oil cooler integrates with the JDL kit perfectly. No fan needed to keep oil temps down that way.

For a street car, you think it'd be more beneficial to have open air while driving vs a fan for when stuck in traffic? This car likely won't ever see a track, it's going to be a fun cruiser with a 3-4 pull once a day while it's being driven.
It also will be driven up until it snows ( Maybe in the snow) so having the fan as a dual purpose time saver for me, so if I have to drive the car at -10 degrees f, I don't have to block off the oil cooler like I did with the Mishimoto unit.


Since I have you, what are your thoughts on the Turbo Guard? I really don't like the idea of it, but a fine mesh screen is better than nothing for the moment, until I figure out the intake piping

Always keep fans.

You need something there to protect the turbo. How well sealed is your engine bay?

I meant a fan on the oil cooler itself. This may be getting a bit far off topic, I'll make my own thread about it so I'm not wasting space on this one. Thank you for the help Mike!! To be continued?

Oh, in the case of the oil cooler, open air is plenty fine for a street car. Fans are only used on oil coolers if there is no guided airflow, and there's no other way to package the coolers to get the flow needed.

Hi Mike,

Do you have any pictures or how to go about mounting the greddy oil cooler with the JDL bash bar? Thanks

I actually have mine mounted "floating" with just foam cushioning on the top and bottom. Normally it's secured to the impact beam the bash bar replaces.

I've had it floating like this for 3 years without issue, and know of quite a few other users doing the same thing.

CSG has some GReddy oil coolers and bash bars in stock if you need it.

Looking to buy a brand new kit from another member but the kit has the open dump wastegate. Is it possible to buy parts to turn into recirculated separately?
