Hi Manny,

        I'm just curious, having a long way to go b/4 getting built.

1) Did you do all the duct taping, etc that Duane suggested in VViews ?

2) Is your oil cooler getting hot at all ?
Yes, unless the OAT gets too low then the shell 15-50 gets too thick too get pushed through the front oil cooler.
3) Do you have a second cooler ?
4) If so, where is it mounted and is it in series or parallel to front
Parrallel, mounted on the bulkhead above the engine
5) Any plumbing to cut out second cooler ?
Yes, a valve to turn off the second oil cooler on the bulkhead
6) What engine and how's your oil temps, CHTs, EGTs ?
Franklin, oil temps around 190 to 210 degrees
