For those who already have an aftermarket oil cooler with AN-12 fittings and want to locate it up front, I now have reasonable cost M30 to AN-12 adapter hose assemblies per this example...........



Available in any length desired. This particular hose assy is under $50. Its a direct fit from M30 to AN-12 with the adapters built in to the fittings.

Please email me for details.

John-

Sorry, forgot to thank you for your follow-up, insight, etc. Much appreciated! Very helpful, thanks!

Any further pics, etc., always beneficial 8-).

Len... that's intriguing. Any length, eh?

So, that would eliminate a bunch of (obscenely $$$!) ends, couplers, fittings, etc., and integrates into the hose so effectively eliminates that to then? I'll be sending you a PM within the coming days to further discuss this with you.

Very cool, thanks for chiming in.

Paul,

Here is another picture. Not great, but hopefully they will help.


I will not get chance to pull the front until later this week or next weekend.

John, have you run the car, and compared temps, with your nose oil cooler in place? I ask, because it looks like you only have about an inch of airspace between the cooler and the front of the car, and it doesn't seem like that would be enough. Also, I would suggest you rubber mount it (appears it is hard mounted in the pic above) or you run a higher risk of cracking the core.

Paul,

That is correct. I had some steel laying around that I wanted to use for a mock up and it worked well enough that I kept it in place. I would recommend using nylon lock style nuts to make it a little easier.

Ronnie,

When the tstat opens it drops about 30* initially ( I have a carrera fender mount cooler also) and stays at 180 even in TX heat. Good point on the rubber mount. I will look into it soon. I had forgotten about that as this was initially a mock up and I just forgot about it.

John

Well, I would say you are good to go regarding airspace, then.

On the rubber mounting - many years ago, I roadraced a hand grenade, 600cc single Yamaha for a couple of years - added an oil cooler from a Saab 900 Turbo at one point, didn't rubber mount the frame I made for it, and the core cracked after about five minutes on the track. I got a replacement cooler, added simple rubber blocks between the cooler framework and the frame of the bike, and no cracking from that point. That is a bit of apples to oranges comparison, as I'm sure there is way less vibration going on at the front of the 930 than on the chassis of that huge single, but still something to think about.

Ronnie,

I have some rubber grommets that I think will work. It can't hurt. The cooler is not light so I don't want to bet it moving too much either. Thanks for pointing that out. I don't want to crack this thing. I was a deal I stumbled on and too good to mess up.

I am sure if I were to add an inch or two on top of the 1" that is behind it the cooler would be more efficient, but it seems to work fine and fits great. The other option is to go with a thinner cooler to allow more space. If I were to go down that path I would just ad a DS fender oil cooler.

John

Happy, as always, to be of assistance to you, Paul, but frankly, I'm really surprised that you would ever have a need for said "rubber"! I guess you have ready access to roofies up thar?!

Perfect for a Summer track day on ... Oh, how about Saturday?



See you at H2R!



This car is such a great one. I call it the Storm Trooper.
Ah ha! There's the jinx! Blown out header on the way there.

That was a bummer.

That was a bummer. It's good now. The boost gauge starts moving at 2000rpm now.
