Curious as to what temps you were getting before oil cooler install. Sounds like it works great though.

No problems whatsoever! 335 oil cooler is obviously overkill for N52, which is what one wants. Also, I tracked with cowling and engine cover. No issues, though I did run full heat and ventilation on max to help cooling.
Well this is good to know! Sounds like I should get one as well
Well, what are your temperatures?
