Caris the Gypsy – The Bus – Oil Cooler

since caris is planning on making a regular thing out of burning man and the like, and he’s going to live in this rig, i felt that he would need a much better oil cooler than the rig came with…

and out of jegs we ordered a perma cool 4 pass cooler with the 5/8″ turbulator tubes, and a dual remote filter mount and the block adapter…

i’m glad it came with all the parts, but i can’t say i’m happy about the damaged fins…

after 20 minutes with a couple butter knives and a careful bit of massaging…

all better. πŸ™‚

… but the adapter parts are obviously cast…

… as you can tell there’s a lot of rough spots where the molds come together…

but all in all it’s not a bad starting point…

this should work out pretty well, but it’s going to take a few hours…

this should flow better, with less pressure drop and turbulence πŸ™‚

caris returns with the bus, so it’s time to get started on it…

to be continued…
