oil cooler kits

I got some feed back today on our oil cooler kit ran on a 840 in FL. The oil coming back into the motor after it goes through the cooler is between 50 and 60* cooler then it was coming out of the motor. It also holds almost a full quart more of oil,that's almost 50% more oil you will be running which is a plus for those of you running long runs at a time. I personaly have not put this kit on a Teryx, everyone that has said you have to move one water line. Everyone has their own place they wanted them mounted so I am just going to sell the kit as seen in the pics and let people mount them how they want to. This cooler gets rid of the heat so fast it does not need to be mounted where it gets air to it so it can be placed where ever you want.

I would be running a 40wt (diesel brand)oil with our cooler. If you still have problems you can run EVANS coolant which runs cooler then anything we have ever run. It's a waterless coolant and it will not boil over until you reach 350*.

a better cooler will work even better, that one is very basic, but as you know, the better cooler the more $$$

For the time the oil is in the cooler I not sure you are going to cool any better. This one is cold in less then 3 min. after they shut the motor off. That's getting rid of heat real fast IMO.

Since I have ran these on Vw's for many many years, the straight in/out loop that yours has, is not as effective as say, a Setrab, with many chambers vs the loop type. I have also set up this style up on Turbo offroad cars. But Like I sated earlier, they are not cheap.

Do not get me wrong, you have a decent kit for a decent price.

Thanks for the info,but have you ever put one on a motorcycle type motor. The reason I ask is those need a big oil pump don't they. We have very small pumps and I was afraid this cooler might have been too big.

no diff than a rhino pump, I run two stock coolers on my rhino and the Flying Banana has a setrab oil cooler. which also means you can use a physically smaller cooler, because they work better. make sense??

FYI many stock street bikes have oil coolers also, they are also not a loop type cooler.

So how much more do they cool?

I know the stock oil filter is kinda close to the bottom skid plate to begin with, with this adaptor increasing the length and moving it even closer, what is the clearance between the skid plate and the bottom of the oil filter?


In addition to this question listed above, when you say "move one water line" is this move and easy move, does another line come in the kit, can you provide photos of the move?


Maybe photos of what the filter with adaptor installed looks like?


thanks, alot of folks might be interested in this

I don't have any pics of what you want to see but there is the same space between the skids as stock its just the water line in front of the oil filter that you move. Like I said before everyone had their own way they want to mount it so I 'm leaving that up to them. It's really quite easy to put on.

Yep, it bolts right on and clears everything but the water line.

Here are some pics of how we put our cooler on the Dirt Wheels 840 project. This will be a four seater so we didn't worry about the dump bed. The cooler can mount anywhere by just drilling 4 holes and straping it on. This pic only shows 2 strap holdinmg it on because we have to take the bed off again before the shoot .

With the bigger oil filter and the oilcooler system it holds 4qts.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
