Oil Cooler for the 1.3?

I wanted to know if anyone has info on puting on a oil cooler for the samurai 1.3? I am puting on power steering with a trans cooler and I thought why not put one on the engine oil too. If anyone has done this, where do you make the inlet and outlet on the engine?

Thanks!

Re: Oil Cooler for the 1.3?

Amsoil has a remote full depth filter & a by-pass filter set up that is really sweet but really expensive. I have this on both my Samis and wouldn't have a vehicle that didn't have this set up. Use synthetic oil and with the remote set up, you'll have additional capacity (more than a quart), incredible filtration, and synthetic because of it's superior lubricity, will run cooler oil temps. I'm surprised that more folks don't run this setup or something similar. When compared to the cost of a rebuild, this is pocket change. Hope this helps......

Re: Oil Cooler for the 1.3?

you can pick up an oil cooler at any auto parts store. It includes an adapter that goes between the block and the filter that has the lines that go to cooler. It really helps keep the engine temp down.

Crow: Does it take longer for your engine to warm up during the Northeastern Winters when your engine is equiped with an oil cooler?

Re: Oil Cooler for the 1.3?

Farther,
I'm not running a conventional oil cooler per say, but the remote set up does act like an oil cooler. Warm ups never seem to be a problem, even on the coldest days. I fabbed a heat shield to protect the filters from the heat generated by the header. Air flow from the grill cool the lines and filters. I'll try to take a pic of it this weekend and post it.

Re: Oil Cooler for the 1.3?

Amsoil claims that for every 10 degree drop in oil temp, the service life of oil is doubled. They also claim a 20-50 degree drop in oil temp when using Amsoil. I'm sure it is the same with other quality synthetics as well. Just food for thought.....

Re: Oil Cooler for the 1.3?

The proof - 170,000 miles on my 91 Sami with only 12 oil changes. No sludge whatsoever in the valve train and top of the head. It looks mint. It's not scientific, but more real life proof. I'm sold on the synthetics and the remote/by-pass setup.

Zooky -

How much did your cost and where did you get it? I'm also looking at a $20 power steering resevoir that doubles as a cooler.
