  • So, Mike's Corsa has been with us the past couple of days...

    ...For the development of our oil cooler kit for the Corsa VXR

    Here's a few teaser pictures:

    The take off union where the hose fits onto with a fitting to take the factory pressure.sender:



    All mounted up securely:



    Oil feed to the turbocharger:

    That is just to demonstrate the heat dissipation the cooler offers, obviously you will have air flowing through the rad. when the car is moving.

    The car will be released after final testing tomorrow, but it's been a real tough one and we are very proud of the fit and finish of the kit.

    There is no indication of price just yet, I have to run the numbers when I'm back in on Monday, but I will do this for you.

    Have a good weekend everyone

                  Thats easy just get an adaptor for one of the lines.

                  Is there a thermostat for the system. Also isnt it best to mount the cooler the other way up so that it holds it bit more oil in the system

                    How does it hold more the other way up? And how would the oil come out at an oil change if the other way up? I'm no mechanic, just my thoughts...

                          I was referring to a kit for those without this cooler.
