    i actually have some extra ER stainless steel oil lines and the adaptor for the oil cooler, so you would just need a core.......actually i stopped taking my car to the track so may disconnect the second core and willing to sell for decent price......maybe simon can hookup the install..pm me for info.
    let me know if this helps.
    Hey guys. I actually purchased the bms thermostat and flushed my coolant with a water wetter mix, and that seemed to drop my temps to a spot I am happy with (for now.) Runs cooler than before but I know I will need more cooling down the road. Thanks for the offer. I'll have to think about that one as my LPFP may need replacing.

    I was thinking of getting the BMS thermostat "delete" too, but I'm up in Philly where it gets kind if chilly. (hey! I'm a poet!) So, I would need to flip around the thermostat every six months or so. I'm thinking an additional electric fan someplace in the engine bay could be really useful.
