i know everyone suggests a AOS...

so far i have zero oil consumation...



i´m a little affraid of installing AOS because of that huuuuge amount of lines...

maybe a Killerb one... i try to make it as simple as possible... heard about freezing lines...
It's a "safe guard". In my experience, I've had little to no oil consumption both with and without one. I can't speak to the killerb AOS - they do make fantastic products... I have their header, oil pick up and baffle - but my IAG street series AOS has seen temps below -20C with wind chill without any issues.

One word of warning, the comp series which vents to the atmosphere drove me up the wall. The smell was extremely noticeable in stop/go traffic. I swapped to the street series for that reason and the smell was totally gone.

I rarely smell mine. OnCe in a great while with a warm engine when I walk up to it, but rarely.

I would love to do the killer b as I agree on the quality of their stuff...I am using the Crawford (if I didn't mention before lol) and works great AFIK, I shortened the lines quite a bit as I agree on the extra hose, but routing under manifold and slightly tighter corners shortened it and make it not as obtrusive looking...

It was time for the Oilcooler.

I ordered Thermostatplate, Setrab Slimline 14row (second biggest size you can get)
some Fittings and Aeroquip lines.

fabbed up some Brackets. checked the routing and lines.
Time for getting the last bits.
Next is oil change and install time!

NICE!!! I did exactly that but using the standard Setrab core.






It is super effective in that location and I think it is because the upper grill is actually a duct.
