Smile Oil Cooler Install (sandwich style)

I tried out one of these simple sandwich style oil cooler kits from NED auto. It is basically an OEM Subaru Forester or whatever oil "cooler". Not recommended for any kind of track usage but probably a step up over no cooler (for street and spirited driving).

This is perfectly timed and should be really helpful for me. Just got my kit, hoping to install it this weekend.

I know this isn't intended for track use, but I am also worried about introducing more failure points on the oil side of the system. Right now I am doing a track day every other month, and being religious with warm-ups, cool downs, checking oil levels, and limiting session length. I saw this as a cheaper and slightly safer modification while under warranty. If I get the 10-15F peak improvement that some people have seen, I will be pretty happy.

not specific to this cooler, but wouldnt any oil cooler make it take even longer to warm up in the winter? or do they not work until the thermostat opens?

Yes, an air-cooled style oil cooler would take longer to warm up your oil in cold temperatures. This sandwich style, since it is cooled/warmed by engine coolant, actually heats up the oil quicker. But, then it is not as efficient at keeping the oil cooled during intense driving because the coolant is very warm.

Now take this and slap an A2O kit on it! It was an idea I had. But wasn't certain how it would work.
