SPELAB Performance Oil Cooler Kit compatible with BMW F8X M3/M4
- Review + Q&A
Add some much needed durability and cooling power to your M3 or M4 or M2 Comp with the Mishimoto Oil Cooler Kit. True to form, the engineers at BMW designed the M3/M4/M2 Comp’s oil cooler with an efficient use of space in mind. Suspended perpendicular from the rest of the cooling stack, this location utilizes the Bimmer’s aerodynamics in order to cool the oil, all while putting the light weight, tube-and-fin cooler in harms way of road hazards.
SPELAB made sure to beef up the oil cooler design with this performance oil cooler. SPELAB ditched the lightweight design for a full aluminum, TIG-welded bar-and-plate cooler for added strength and cooling. The bars and plates are a much more robust form of heat exchanger core construction intended for improved heat transfer and have the strength to shrug off potential road debris, keeping your oil temps down, and where it should be. Also, 10mm was added to the core’s thickness, equating in a 46% increase in core volume and increased the oil capacity by .4 qt.
In addition we wanted to add an extra degree of protection to the system by improving on the lines. From the factory, these vehicles are equipped with unforgiving hardlines that are prone to abrasion and corrosion damage. Our oil cooler kit provides a pair of application-specific, flexible, and robust nylon braided lines for a more secure channel for your oil. Also included are our specially designed adaptors allowing for AN fittings from the S55's oil pump and a secure connection to the oil cooler.
The SPELAB BMW Oil Cooler for various S55-engine-equipped applications fits directly in place of the stock unit
