    Oh one would be stupid to run an oil cooler with inlet and outlet on the bottom of the cooler, it would never fill up all the way. My big ass oil cooler that i linked to has the in and out at the top so its fully filled always.

    Interesting......I had never thought about this inlet / outlet issue before.

    I am wondering if the optimal orientation might be inlet at the top, with the outlet (return) at the bottom?

    no. both at top is optimal. If outlet is at bottom it will drain back. then you will have a huge cavitation in the oil system on startup until the pump can fill the lines and cooler.

    Check the hardware on the cheap coolers. I bought the same cooler and almost cooked my Daytona 190 4v on my 50 because of this bolt. They missed a step in manufacturing the banjo bolt, no hole= no oil

    Correct top is optimal, but not for cavitation. While yes it would drain back, the oil pump would fill the entirety of the oil cooler n lines in 5-10 seconds. But with an orientation of top and bottom you would still run into the issue of the oil cooler never getting completly full which is not optimal for 1. the entire surface area is not being used. 2. air within the oil cooler acts as insulation which would reduce its efficient.

    Now you could do a bottom inlet top outlet and that would work. But still both top inlet and outlet is the best orientation.

    Any hardware you buy should be inspected by the buyer, yes the QC should have checked that out before shipping.

    Always check your hardware when un-boxing it.

    Potentially stupid question...Are any of you worried about keeping the oil too cool with one of the giant coolers?

    No....you probly can't ever cool it off eough that it would hinder or help performance. For suspensions thats a diff story....they do make shock heaters and boots......

    I always thought you wanted at least 180, and ideally around 212 or so to burn off water? If you designed system to keep the oil at room temp, I would say that is a bad idea. Is this wrong?
