Help me make a cheap oil cooler for these engines...

I am going to build a kit for a cheap oil cooler setup. This setup will cost the consumer about $75-80 and use high-end components. Why? Because I am sick of these large companies ripping off people for stuff that doesn't cost anywhere near what we are paying for it.

So, what I need is a picture...from one of you guys that have an expensive oil cooler. I need a picture of the backside of the oil cooler adapter plate. Once I have that, I will modify my plate, get some adapters, and put on a HP 4 row cooler.

I have a temperature gauge in my oil and will determine the effectiveness of the cooling once completed with some scientific testing (15 minutes of 50mph driving from a cold start) with and without the cooler and take temperature readings.

I'd contact to see if he can get just the adapter plates, as I know he can, but if he will, that's a different story.

here ya go

It is the plate that is going to be difficult. For me, it is no bid deal...a drill press with a mill cutter and a steady hand will knock down the fins just the way I need them.

As a matter of fact, I think I can build this thing for less than $50!
good luck and if its that cheap I dont think it will be a good quality cooler as I havent found any that are inexpensive yet GOOD quality for under 50 bucks
