How much oil with front mount cooler?

The radiator style not the tube type. Tried Brad Penn and it did lower my oil temp by about 20 to 25 degrees(conventional to synthetic) I also replaced the front t-stat (inop) so I was wondering how much additional oil beyond the 12 quarts?

The oil in the tubes doesnt change with an oil change. You drain the case, the tank and refill is about 11 quarts.

Mine is 17 liters from a dry fill, with engine cooler plus setrab front cooler.

As stated above, you won't replace the oil forward of the thermostat unless you separately drain those lines. Even if it was hot enough to be open when you drain the oil ( hothothothot!) the thermostat will soon close before you complete the drain.
