Oil cooler kits are aftermarket components designed to add or upgrade the oil cooling system in a vehicle.
Oil Cooler: The core component of the kit is the oil cooler itself. This is a heat exchanger designed to transfer heat from the oil to a cooling medium, such as air or coolant.
Hoses and Fittings
The kit provides hoses and fittings that connect the oil cooler to the engine or transmission and to the vehicle's oil lines. These hoses need to be durable and heat-resistant.
Adapter Plates or Sandwich Adapters
In some cases, the kit might include an adapter plate or sandwich adapter that allows the oil cooler to be integrated into the existing oil filter housing.
Some high-performance oil cooler kits include a thermostat that controls the flow of oil through the cooler. This helps maintain the oil at an optimal temperature by allowing flow only when the oil temperature reaches a certain threshold.
In certain applications, particularly those where air flow might be restricted, the kit might include cooling fans to enhance the cooling efficiency of the oil cooler.
Seals and Gaskets
To prevent leaks and ensure a secure connection, the kit may include seals, gaskets, and other necessary sealing components.
Nice kit, with out the premium price. A must for power strokes. Comes from over seas. Took about 10 days to receive, with good Communication along the way. Going to consider other offerings from SPELAB.
