Hey guys, does anyone run a custom oil cooler? My oil temps via obd2 are pretty high, especially when sat in traffic often going to 105+. Thinking about adding a bigger oil cooler but haven’t seen any for the r56. Have seen some for the r50/53 only.

Any suggestions welcomed.

Geoff.

I have a Setrab oil cooler on mine and it's been spot on, but fuck me that kit is expensive! The oil cooler itself is only around £100 retail price, where does the rest of the money go?

I will be getting one of these installed HEL Performance Custom Engine Oil Cooler Kit, not sure if they're any better than the cheap Chinese ones.

That’s a nice bit of kit. Think it will have to happen soon. I thought my valve seals were done, but it never smokes until it’s hot, and by that point I’m guessing the oil has thinned sufficiently that it can then pass the valve seals for the smoke. Drops off again when the oil cools.
