    gday fellas
    Im looking for an engine oil cooler kit for my 6.2 (clubsport). Ive found a B&M oil cooler kit (BM70270) but need to get an additional adapter for LS engines. Just wondering if anyone has an engine oil cooler set up on their VE clubsport and how they went about it. The harder i drive the car, the more the engine oil temp. sky rockets and the more sluggish the car becomes.

    Any type of advice would be great.

    Cheers

    I put a giant cooler from Earl's on mine... I feel stupid for posting this but I used an adapter from Katech in the US that bolts on right to the block above the oil filter and ran -10 lines to the front of the car. It wasn't worth as much as I wanted, but keeps oil temp under about 275 during a road race type event. I'm not running a thermostat in the oil cooler line, either. That's supposed to be bad but with synthetic oil I don't think it's a big problem.
