BTW, I think my FPR may be made from China...it works fine, but still looked kinda cheap, even though it was made from Megan

i think you'd be ok without the oil cooler, trans cooler is more important.

however if you did do an oil cooler, it honestly could be the same cooler as whats cooling the trans, just be sure to get one thats temp controlled so that you dont overcool the oil on cold days, it backs up in the return line because its too thick, and you push oil out of the turbo seals and need a new turbo

They seem ok.... I mean, even being from 1AutoMart....... idk. Never heard of them before, but I guess you'd just have to see for yourself, unless someone has ordered from them before.

yeah, I'm not familiar with that vendor either...but then again, the place I bought my TYCs from had a really low-budget website and the guy wasn't really familiar with them...but, he was very helpful when I called and the lights are perfect! Give them a call and ask them...if they're legit, they should understand your concern...if they get pissed, it's probably because they're fake (or they're just jerks who don't deserve your business)...:bigthumb:

Found some new cooler parts for my next install, just wanted some input, seeing as though these parts could be made from counterfeit and all and may not be worth my time. But you got to admit when they start counterfeiting toothpaste, I have to be certain if I have the safest parts.

you may want to find out how your supposed to get the oil to the cooler... our oil filter housing does not have any ports for an oil cooler im pretty sure the only way to do it is to get an evo8 oil filter housing or one of these kind of kits OIL FILTER RELOCATION KIT but if you get that kit it wont be temp controlled, the evo8 housing is
