Oil Cooler Build - Sanity check

100
0
Okay, I've read more threads than I want to remember, but I wanted to run the list on here for a sanity check incase I am missing or wrong on anything.

Have purchased:
1. Setrab 948
2. Mishimoto sandwich plate
http://www.mishimoto.com/rear-mount-thermostatic-sandwich-plate-m-22.html

In cart to buy:
1. Improved racing raceflux viton an10 line (9ft)

2. 45* swivel to hose end fitting (2)

3. M22 Adapter for Setrab cooler fittings (2)

4. Straight swivel to hose end fitting (2)

5. ?? Adapter for mishimoto plate to fittings? It seems like I will need m20 to AN fittings. What are you guys using that run the mishimoto plate? Improved racing doesnt seem to have these and I was really hoping to use one place for everything.

I am getting mounting hardware from mike, and I have a CSF radiator waiting to go on and will be monitoring via aim MXL.

So outside of #5 question, any input/changes?
 
I'd order more hose just to be on the safe side. We barely had enough for mine at 10ft.

Are you keeping the stock cooler or deleting it with this setup?

Interesting, everyone seemed to use ~8ft, but I'd rather have more than enough than less for sure!

It's a GT, no boss cooler.
 
I think I used close to 10 feet too. @06mach1 will know.

I purchased 10' and had a little left over. 9' might be enough but it will real close. I would order 10' to be sure. And as far as the fittings for the Mishimoto plate, I can't remember the part number but I do remember purchasing them from a hydraulic fitting store and they were steel, not aluminum. The steel fittings have a bigger ID than the aluminum fittings.

I used less than 9' with a generous amount of slack. But I see how even a slightly different routing could easily suck up more.

Used some of this too, but looks like it's out of stock right now:

Thanks guys - I will order a little more of the hose.

Grant - I had put the sleeve in my cart then saw it was out of stock. damnit.. I may call to ask when they will have more.

I guess I am stuck using adapters from another company for the mishimoto plate.. I have weird ocd about wanting all the parts to come from one place but I guess I can get over it.
