are you looking for the type that goes in the water line? looks like a long tube with the little tubes inside of it.

Tom : that is how my block is , 1/2 filled .. , what oil temp are you running ?

I bought a used oil cooler and have not installed it yet . My mechanic did not think I needed it with the oil temp that I am running . But I wll install it one of these days for extra security . My oil temps is round 240-245 after about 10 hard pases

I just took my Heat gun with me and shot it at the pan after I made those 10 passes , I still check from time to time like this . I even installed a oil temp sending unit in the pan and never hooked it up .

With the turbo's on it , it wouldn't hurt to get a cooler on it then . There is two boats that run down here . Mild twin turbo's engines , and neither one has an oil coler ..

It just how hard the bottom end of the engine is working , that creates that heat in the pan I think ??

you got that and the valvetrain heat all built up in the oil pan and no way to cool down on this 1/2 filled block. this tt496 is punishing the shortblock:)sphss
