Oil pan cooler, which holes are which?

Post by Thomas0zero » Sat Feb 26, 2011 7:57 pm

I just bought a SRT oil pan and there are 3 holes and im not sure what they go to from the factory. I know 2 of them are for the oil cooler. Which one? and is which is in and out for flow. Also, does the oil pass through the filter before the cooler or through the cooler then the filter?

Thanks!

The 2 holes on the back are for the oil filter/cooler. The cooler is part of the filter assembly

The plugs are only there so that the pan can be drilled in the proper directions. No need to remove them unless you are going to clean up the sharp edges on the drilled passages and/or enlarge them. Oil goes thru the cooler first then the filter..

AHHH, ok. So the oil cooler is part of the pan? Huh. Well thank you. I thought the oil cooler was external.

No, the cooler is the piece hanging off the back side of the bracket, it's a separate piece. It comes off. Stick an allen wrenchin into the tube that holds the cooler to the bracket. Non-turbo Cruisers have the bracket but no oil cooler.

They work. When oil goes 250*F+ and coolant is only 200, net 50 degree difference is excellent especially across a liquid to liquid heat exchanger.

You'll also need jackshaft setup as lines come way too close to axle boot. Mine had big floppy silicon boot, but it may have been worse than skinnier plastic booted axles - but just a heads up. I ziptied lines to oil filter and that was ok short term.
