    I believfe you can use an s14 oil filter head on an '02 engine. It is tapped for oil cooler lines.

    no - kits are available from many sources ie. Ray Korman's. Earl's Plumbing, any 02 parts house involved with racing. It's a simple
    filter housing replacement, and mounting of cooler and routing of hoses.

    what about the plumbing?

    do you need to drill holes in the oil filter housing?

    they are usually mounted to the front of the regular radiator (usually after an upgrade to an E21 radiator. I have also seen them mounted behind the driver's side headlight - usually requires some cutting of sheet metal.

    Actually 300 degrees for oil is not normally harmful most oils are safe to over 350 and synthetics are way on up there.ClydeG R 2 4

    how and where do you install an oil cooler?

    I have a oil temp gauge and it reads about the same temp as the water temp gauge with normal driving. I took the car to the track and the oil temp went to 300 THAT'S HOT. I would like to solve that problem. Thanks for the help. Wayne
