    I found Burton performance to be the cheapest for snadwich plates and oil cooler radiators.

    Anyone able to shed a bit more light on how I would go about fitting one to a VR6, have people changed over from the paper filter? and got rid of the oil housing?

    And what exactly do you need to do with the oil cooler already on there and the pipes and sensors related to it?

    Hi!

    There was a thread with discussions not long ago with regard to Mocal oil cooler / winter engine/oil temp not warm enough……. what was the conclusion of that? What’s the recommendation for ‘winter use’ if I was to fit an oil cooler to my VR6?

    Thanks.

    The conclusion was look at the cooling system before fitting a Mocal cooler because with a 100% tip top cooling system, the oil should run at normal temps. 'Normal' being mid 96 - 102 on a motorway cruise.

    Mine used to run at 114 @ 80mph but after replacing the radiator, water pump (main) and heat exchanger, it now runs 96-98 at the same speed.

    Could someone just confirm. Should this side of the sandwich plate go up against the block? or the other way around!?

    other side goes against the block - has a rubber seal on it. Your oil cap will have the other seal.
