Advan Stage 2 oil cooler kit install and review

Hi guys just want to share some pics of instillation and review of Advan stage 2 oil cooler kit for anyone who is looking for a oil cooler that bigger than stock!
kits was installed by David @ EVO GARAGE in Richmond BC Canada. total installation time appx. 5 hours.
first impression of the oil cooler kit: High quality, good fitment overall (but need some improvement - for example, hose connect from oil outlet to external thermostat come about 1" too short, end up need to move thermostat away from bracket. )
oil temperature with new oil cooler
oil temp. stay around 85c during highway driving, stop and go traffic, around 95-100c, after WOT. a few runs, 100c.
please noted due to frezzer cold weather in west coast canada ( 3-7c) during test. the real test will need to wait till i bring the car to the track next year to see if it really help to cool down oil temp. during hard track condition.
MOD: Cobb accessport sport map. K&N drop in air filter. Engine oil Motal 8100
