This post is for BigD!

I did my best to take some pics of the oil cooler.

Used some metal plates to make brackets out of. Then just bolted them to a threaded rod that runs to the bottom of the cooler as well. It's really sturdy. Not even mounted to anything on the bottom. Just bolted to the panel on the front.


Lines are mounted on the bottom:

I wasnt able to get the M3 up to Mosport and had to take the 328! But it looks like I may be taking the M3 to Cayuga for Wednesday. M3 will go to Mosport on June 30th.

Thanks a lot dude, much appreciated! Looks good! I recently asked this turbo racecar shop who's been advising me on a few things, and they said that these big boost race motors heat up to nuclear meltdown. They run two 13x12" oil coolers... fml. This is now outside of the scope of some brackets

Doing what I can to get some extra cash together for another school! But I'll probably bring the 328 for that

Yeah man, I'm not even sure where tf I can fit them. So I decided to wait until the engine is fully installed and configured, so I can have a sober look at how much space I have. At least there's some light at the end of that tunnel, I might get it back in a few weeks (block is machined, head needs some assembly... 8 months later). If this goes on much longer this way, I may have to do a build like yours, so I can have one car that I can track and another in a perpetual state of "please wait..."
