    Bottom fuel line is Aeroflow, top is what I normally use from a US supplier. Both are 3/8".

    The engine oil cooler is stuck to the block and does the job fine. Holds 1.5L so has a fair capacity, trans cooler is behind the
    grill in a space that is shared with the radiator, intercooler and condenser. There really isnít room to fit a bigger trans cooler
    and it isnít really needed either. Mine had no issues towing 1800kg with the cruise set at 130 on 40+ deg days.

    Thatís what I was told regarding my M3. Used to peg the oil temp gauge at the track.

    This was an Aeroflow intercooler. Avoid.

    Amongst the 80-odd Eaton Aeroquip fittings on my car, this is the one single Aeroflow fitting on my car. It's simply a gravity adapter for an un-pressurized blower oil return. Just happened to be the right size length and only thing available to suit the application off-shelf without custom making anything.

    See that strip of metal wire just below the fitting? That's part of the thread that used to (and obviously is supposed to) live inside the fitting...

    I'm not a huge fan of mixing AN/JIC aluminum and steel regardless of brands.

    I was taught like with like with fittings.
    I may do dodgy shit from time to time, but I also prefer doing things once.

    Industrial steel fittings are great, JIC, BSPP etc will hold 6500psi for forever and a day and never leak but yeah, mixing aluminum and steel is never ideal.
    Had issues with aluminum fitting galling out of the blue and sometimes you have to put a lot more than you should into them to get a solid seal or you get complacent and give it a bit and probably stretch it.

    I use EATON fittings with PTFE braided hose, never had a single issue, yes they don't look as "cool" and yes you have to change the olive seal every time you take it apart but they work well and are mostly cheaper than Speedflow and internally they are full size
