Do i need an Oil Cooler???
 
I have an 02 wrx EJ205 stock turbo pushing 18psi i take it to the track sometimes. I had a cracked radiator so i bought an aftermarket one but it has an oil cooler for an auto trans. built in to it but i have a manual so i dont need the cooler for the trans. can or should i use it for an engine oil cooler??

Nope.

Oil coolers are only for competitive level road racing where your oil temps will get high enough to warrant one. Do you have an oil temp gauge?

I don't have an oil cooler and I do track events (HPDE)...just saying. Spend your money elsewhere.

agreed.
just make sure you always have fresh quality oil (I run rotella t6) and make sure your not low and that will be all you need.!Thumbs Up
