Item Number:



Every watercooled VW needs an oil cooler other than the factory unit. Volkswagens simply run too hot of an oil temperature in stock form. rnrnA high-output engine in a cramped engine compartment can generate a lot of heat. Not only do high engine temperatures contribute to lubricant breakdown, they also contribute to a shorter engine life and/or loss in overall horsepower.rnrnA properly installed oil cooler will give your car extra thermal cooling to keep heat under control during periods of peak demand.rnrnOil lubricates best in the range of 180 to 212 F. Below this temp, the oil isn't hot enough to burn off harmful contaminants. Temps above 230F, it starts to thin out and oxidize, reducing lubrication significantly. The Mocal thermostatic sandwich plates return oil to the engine when it's below 180F, allowing the engine to warm up quickly. Once warm, the thermostat opens, and the oil flows to the cooler to keep temperatures within the ideal range.rnrnKit includes:rn(1) Mocal Sandwich Plate thermostaticrn(2) 1/2" x -10an unionsrn(2) 1/2" sealing washersrn(8') 5/8" i.d. hose socketless FBN1000rn(2) 90 degree hose endsrn(2) straight hose endsrn(2) adell clampsrn(2) oil cooler strap/bracketrn(1) assorted hardware nuts/boltsrnrnNOTE: Be sure to pick out your oil cooler heat exchanger for a complete bolt on kit!


It can be a challenge on some vehicles to mount oil coolers due to lack of space and mounting surfaces. On vehicles without air conditioning, the cooler can be mounted next to, or in front of, the radiator. On vehicles where oil cooling is more essential, a little ingenuity must be used to get the most airflow possible. If space is too limited at the front, the cooler can still function if mounted in a more horizontal fashion in the engine bay using the supplied steel brackets. If forced to mount close to the ground, use a heavy wire mesh type screen for protection. Even if your cooler is not directly in any sort of air stream, it can also work as a heat sink and will still offer much more vital engine protection than without an oil-cooler installed.
