The Madness designed Oil Cooler Kit reduces oil temperatures between 30 - 40 degrees Fareinheight by circulating hot oil though a high-efficiency external cooler. This means reducing oil temperatures from 225 to 185 degrees Fareinheight . The stock oil cooler cools the engine oil via a small heat exchanger (pictured in blue) that circulates hot antifreeze, reaching 225F and higher during racing use, hot climates and heavy traffic. By adding the Madness MINI Cooper S Oil Cooler Kit, the life and quality of the oil are improved. Miles of life are added to high-wear engine components such as piston rings, piston skirts, cam bearings, and rod bearings. Another benefit from the Madness MINI Cooper S Oil Cooler Kit is the reduction in overall engine temperatures. This occurs because the engines antifreeze is not used to cool the oil like in the stock unit.
Oil Cooler- Setrab oil coolers are world renound for their racing oil coolers and are considered the most efficient on the market. With 9 times the cooling area of the stock oil cooler, significant temperature decreases are achieved. We also have a top mount oil radiator for customers with our new water to air intercooler.
Adapter Plate- Made from T6061 billet aluminum this adapter plate is the centerpiece of this kit. Not only does it allow you to connect the oil cooler hoses with ease but we have designed it to accommodate an oil pressure sensor and oil temperature sensor. No more drilling into the oil filter cap for oil pressure sensor mounting!
Installation- Full instructions are provided on CD and installation takes 2-3 hours.
BEWARE of other oil cooler kits on the market!- Other MINI Cooper oil cooler kits on the market use smaller diameter hoses which restrict oil flow. This can result in higher oil temperatures over the stock oil cooler!
The Madness Oil Cooler Kit comes complete with all of the necessary adapters, fittings, and hoses that you will need for installation.
