    Aeroflow, OK or avoid.

    Looking at adding/upgrading the engine oil cooler to the Challenger when I get it, noticed supercheap do Aeroflow products. Will I be risking failure or are they OK? Iirc the 4D56 has a factory oil cooler, only a small one, so I probably won't need need to risk the adaptor kits.

    They are OK (they ave a large range of fittings), but if you can obtain Speedflow fittings to do the same job, use Speedflow.

    What about the actual oil coolers? Other option is Davis Craig.

    I've had one split at one of the end tank seams on the track, was lucky to not lose the engine. Have never had any issues with setrab or earls coolers on my other cars

    If a failure will kill your engine, buy reputable.

    Mitsubishi
    If it was a proper one I'd be drinking the same Koolaid as the rest of them.

    Sure you don’t want an upgraded trans cooler? The Mitsubishi’s are usually susceptible to trans overheats when towing or doing hard work off road

    I'm paranoid and over think shit.
    They have a small engine oil cooler from the factory, so I'd hazard a guess oil temps are abit of an issue. In saying that I've never heard of oil issues with the 4D56. Upgrading the cooler is cheap insurance, provided I get one that won't fail.

    That's a given, although I think there's already one fitted. Didn't look closely but I saw something aftermarket looking in front of the radiator, wasn't keen on looking too hard in 40C heat.

    Unless you're using a standard car for something it wasn't designed to do (airport tug???), I wouldn't bother

    Why don't you install an oil temp guage, and see if its operating in an acceptable range? You might be trying to solve a problem you don't actually have.

    They have a decent-sized oil cooler in the front of them. Not sure if it's engine oil, or trans oil.

    Whatever it's cooling, it looks more than adequate for the job, providing you don't stick a 200kg bullbar and winch combo in it's path.

    I've been lucky with the Aeroflow stuff on mine, wouldn't risk it again though. I did have a Holley fuel regulator that split its diaphragm and when I tried to get a new one the part was a dead ringer for the Aeroflow one. From the same factory apparently.

    I bought an areoflow engine stand from that fuckwit that used to sell that shit. The stand was so shit it bent as soon as I put a V8 on it when it was rated for 500kg.

    Like pro flow and anything really. The answer is “choose wisely”. Cheap Chinese shit is fine for certain tasks but anything critical id be investing in known quality.
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

    As above, they threw a bunch of stuff at the stagea and its still going strong. used their fuel block and lines and fittings for supergramps and still going fine. none of this is mega budget 1000hp+ stuff. had the odd part fail but I've had equal number of issues with speed flow. Often its user error too where a hose isn't made properly.

    Sure it doesn't have a water to oil cooler like every other modern turbo car? Just keep on top of the cooling system and not worry about it.

    Geez I don't know, I guess when oil temps hit 130 degrees on the track as long as you use the right oil everything will be A-OK

    Synthetic oils are great, they stay in perfect condition even at extended periods at 150c where they are the viscosity of acetone fumes.
    The old big end bearing takes a fucking beating though.


    not really such an issue in a diesel 4WD

    Do you know where I can buy an oil heater for my car? Oil temps are sitting on 100 degrees, really want them up around the 150 mark for peak vape performance.
