Front mounted oil cooler/bracket source?

#1 Post by Perry DePietro » Wed Jul 18, 2018 5:12 pm

I know there have been several threads on various aspects of mounting front oil coolers. I have the hard-lines and GT fittings for my outlaw project. I was wondering if someone could point me to a source for the coolers/brackets themselves. I am not looking for original GT coolers, just something that is good quality, will fit in the spaces behind the turn signal grills and will keep my 2.5 liter 914 motor running cool in the Carolina summer. Thanks.

Thank you for the reply. I would like to learn more about your parts source.

The other part of the question, though, is just as pressing. What type of small cooler do builders use for this application (make/size/source)? Is the thermostatic/fan necessary, or will the coolers alone be adequate?

thanks in advance.
