    Default oil cooler query

    Earlier this year I was able to look at a new Schiada 21' v-drive, It had a Brummett twin turbo setup in it, and what I thought was interesting is that the oil cooler was about 5 to 6 inches in diameter and about 4 feet long. I have never seen anything like this, just wondering who made it , and does it do a better job at oil cooling than the small ones that bolt to the block. I'm building an engine that I want to run at higher engine speeds for longer times than a short blasts, was thinking this might work better for my application. Thanks

    I have a heat exchanger I bought from Teague, about 2'L and 3.5" diameter on my blown deal and it's way to much cooler, I can't get any heat in the motor unless I run at least 5000rpm for 15 or 20 minutes, even then not much.

    Without actually seeing it, I can only tell you that it is entirely possible for the exchanger the OP saw, could handle the motor, the oil and the trans, all in the same can.

    So, with the all in one setup, the engine has its own recirculating water system, lake water never enters the engine, and trans and oil cooler are all built in? I have never seen anything like that before, sounds interesting. The Schiada I looked at, I think had an oil filter on the unit itself, but can be certain as it was about 5 months ago. Thanks for the help.

    If Carson built it than It's "TRICK" but for us in the real world of limited finance's, If you use one of the quality oil coolers (straight thru) Plumed from the pick-up thru the pump to the cooler then It will cool the oil a bunch, However the way you divert the oil from your eng. & route (90 deg. fittings, small lines, any restrictions) can negate any benefits from cooling it & be detrimental to an eng.
