Ok, I know this is probably the wrong area to post this... so mod, feel free to move it.

Discom is doing a CNC run for an Aluminium oil take-off plate for those who who like to install a dedicated oil cooler. This take-off plate replaces the stock Oil cooler at the same location. It will fit the S60/V70 series as well as the new S40/V50 series. Est. price inclusive of shipping is USD100 just for the oil take-off plate.

Pics of my car fitted with it below:




Who's interested?

Sounds interesting to me. Any suggested oil coolers to use with it? Can they do custom oil lines? Mounting locations?

Re: (adykes)

I'd be interested if there is supply pressure to one side of the hose to the oil cooler. I don't know anything about the stock oil cooling setup or how it's supposed to function. Maybe you can clue us in?

Thanks
Kevin

Re: Oil Take-off Plate for S60/V70/R, new S40/V50. (blot)

Good question where is a good place to install the cooler and where do we get one? is there enough preasure on the stock pump to run a aftermarket cooler efficently?

Awesome! As noted above, I would like to know more details but I am interested. I eventually plan on a bigger turbo and adding an oil cooler is a great idea. I believe you upgraded your oil pump. I will check your mod list.

Edit-

No upgraded pump.

2 things to be cautious of....

1- avoid sharp turns on oil lines

2 - the oil may not warm as well in cold weather, consider an inline bypass for cold climes

Re: (blot)

Thanks Blot for the post and pics.

I am doing a run of 10 takeoff plates at this time and 4 are already spoken for. I will sell the rest to Swedespeed members at USD110 shipped.

This takeoff plate is designed to work with an Aeroequip AN10 to 1/2 in NPT coupler or equivalent.

Of course AN10 hoses and fittings are recommended.

I would also recommend a Earl's remote thermostat. This thermostat will only start routing oil to the oil cooler at 160 degrees Fahrenheit and will be fully open at 180 degrees Fahrenheit. It will also allow mounting of 3 sensors, thus you can monitor oil pressure and temperature if so desired. Another plus is that it is designed for AN10 fittings.

The stock oil pump is more than sufficient to support an oil cooler.

Basically, you will remove your stock oil cooler, replace it with the take off plate and remember to join the 2 radiator lines that was connected to the stock oil cooler.

The stock oil cooler uses the radiator fluid to cool the oil, so by doing this mod, your radiator will have less heat load too.

If demand is sufficiently high, I can do a bigger run and I will pass on the cost savings to the buyers.

Terry at VMS mentioned to me they had a cooler for the S60 Trannys....

I had some stuff written up here: http://forums.swedespeed.com/z...age=3

and here: http://forums.swedespeed.com/z...age=4

let me know if you guys have more queries.

My oil cooler setup has been running fine for now, much better than with the OEM setup during tracking. No problems with oil press even during max cornering Gs.

Thanks! That's great info. Has anyone actually used the oil cooler from Greddy? I am thinking that would be the best for a MT set up since you can put it in the place of the optional tranny cooler the GT can have.

Is the tranny cooler optional in the GT....? I thought it was standard.

The standard cooler is just the one inside the engine radiator end cap (as I recall) the optional one is a Volvo part and you can get it from Viva

Mocal also has thermostats that open at 180 F (82 Celcius) and also 200 F (93 Celcuis). At what temp do you want the thermostat to open and allow the oil to circulate to the oil cooler? Whats the best temp for stock applications? For the 360-400hp range? 400-450hp?

I remember JimLill talking about dangers of overcooling the oil & drawing moisture to it. (Factors such as driving style and climate have been discussed as well)

Re: (ArtVandelay0023)

I don't think there are real dangers with modern day synthetic oils. Moreover, since I change my engine oil quite frequently (once every 2 track sessions), its a non issue for me.

Most japanese cars run at 90degC stock, those heavily modded use thermostats for oil and water at 180F over here where the weather is always hot and humid. In cold climates, look for thermostats that open gradually to avoid thermal shock.

Oil coolers longetivity....issues?

I came across this and read throug the thread...I saw some said it was still going strong. I was just looking for updates on this upgrade. Some feedback from the guys who did the swap?
