Oil Cooler, 911 '65 -'89 - Kit
Designed by SRP and made for us by PWR in Indianapolis, these oil coolers were carefully thought out, designed, and heavily tested. It's intended to be a direct replacement for the Carrera coolers ('84-'89), or the generation cars with the so-called trombone cooler, as well as the earlier cars that didn't have any oil cooler at all. They are designed to be used with the steel OE oil tubing (hard lines that run alongside the car and up into the front right wheel well), along with two OE flex hoses used on the Carreras, and the OE lower mounting bracket.
The cooler is 67% larger than the "Carrera" cooler in total volume and has a temperature bung so a fan thermostat can be used to control a fan, it also has a drain plug for easy cleaning if needed. Its lower mount design allows the OE Carrera lower mounting bracket to be used (though repositioned) isolated by two rubber vibration dampers.
The optional wire mesh screen is made completely of stainless steel and it is recommended for any fender installation to protect them from gravel, rubber etc.
A "Spal" brand electric push fan with a front-mounted bezel is also available. Two fans can be used if the headlight bucket is removed or modified for specific purposes, but a single fan can be used on any road-going car.
On hot summer days here in California, we have tested them in 106F ambient temp and in bumper-to-bumper traffic and the oil temp remained at 190F with the fan running. We use a standard Bosch radiator fan switch that switches on at ~186F (86C). (This is not included as many people choose different range switches.)
