Hey guys Check it out!
Big Thanks to taylors335 for the Write Up. This is has been in the making for a couple of weeks now, I've just been waiting on all the parts and all. Finally got everything-in, put all the hoses together, fittings welded and BAM!

Let me know what you guys think!
P.S. I ended up going with a Setrab Oil Cooler just cuz i got a great deal on one...

doesnt matter since cars that dont have oem oil coolers just have plugs right there that you can screw out.

I think you're asking if thia car has an OEM oil cooler, yes it does. If your car is not equipped with an OEM oil cooler you would need to purchase a housing for the N54 that has anoil cooler.

Any ill effect on the coolant temps since you're blocking some radiator area?

Not really... the air still goes through it... I rarely see my water temps pass ~205.
I have a Performance Steering wheel so I'm always monitoring my temps...

Looks good. But very similar to the AR Design radiator, I think they're also using Setrab cores.

Looks dope, super stealthy. It's hardly noticeable unless you stare right at it.. And even then it almost blends in with the radiator

Here is the highest temp I got after a few spirited runs (45 min or so of driving) then some stop and go.

(1) - Setrab Oil Cooler. I went with 50-619-7612 which is a 19 Row Series-6 Cooler, If I was to do it over I would get the 50-920-7612 which is the 20 Row Series-9 (3in longer)

(2) - 22mm-AN8 fittings threads onto the oil cooler

(1) - Straight -AN8 Fitting (Drivers Side Hose End)

(1) - 45* -AN8 Fitting (Passenger Side Hose End)

(2) - 90* -AN8 Fittings (Oil Housing Fittings)

(2) - Drilled Oil Housing Plugs

(2) - 90* Pipe Thread to -AN8 (Chop off the Threads and Weld to Drilled Plugs **Make sure to dial them(mark them) in so they point in the right direction**)

(4) - 4ft of hose


Thanks prett much it.
I used taylors335 write-up a reference...
