Nice... thanks for the tip...

AD Engineering intercooler (650)
Motorsport24 dual oil cooler kit...... well waiting to hear back from them, but I'm set on it.

Let me know if you hear back. I reached out to them last week about the oil coolers for my 1M front-end conversion and have not heard back yet.

I'm going to give a quick atta boy to SPL Parts on some of these items. Thier quality is beyond the industry norm by a large margin. This is coming from a Technician, with a background in prototype machining.

I did finally hear back from Motorsports24 about the oil coolers. Looks like they are just busy over there, and I suggest you guys just keep trying.

You won't go wrong with the CSF radiator. I have it in my Pure Turbo 1M in Singapore (tropical hot country). Paired with the BMS thermostat, i've never seen my oil temps above 110 Degrees Celsius even with repeated pulls.

On an average, it goes up to 80-90 degrees, hard runs probably max 105-110? car runs cool.

Quality wise, the CSF radiator looks well built, fins are nice and the end tanks are welded beautifully. No complaints!



btw TS, very nice mods!

Thank you guys. I can't say enough good things about the CAE shifter. I appreciate precision, and with this, I get it with every throw. I'll take video the first track day this spring.

Thanks, nice build, will be interested in your feedback on the CAE shifter..

Can't decide with to go with CAE or the Samsonas ones (slightly cheaper - but better looking imo).

Taking all that compliance out of the suspension is going to transform your car. You'll still have to stay on top it's eagerness to spit you of the off the road, but it will be far more consistent while getting to that point.

Will be interested to know if any issues arise with the CSF radiator installation as far as fitment goes, given the cramped quarters of the E82 engine bay. Contemplating doing this at home ...

Would appreciate logs on temps before/after. Cluster gauges usually aren't reliable with dead-zoning etc (because the masses would freak out).

I have the same wheel—does yours ever heat up? I've had days where its really hot outside and the screen won't turn on when I hold the buttons...After a few minutes of driving it starts.
