Default Alternative oil cooler

Any reason not to get this from Chief?

http://www.chiefaircraft.com/aec-8000215.html

Looks to be same size as stock, claimed 2 oz lighter and leaves wallet $70 heavier than the Van's part.

Just researching options. I know many went with oversize coolers but others didn't and have no issues...

Appreciate feedback.

Engine Baffle Kit
VA-187 4" Duct Flange DO NOT FORGET THIS PART, IT IS NOT INCLUDED WITH THE BAFFLE KIT
VA-186 Oil Cooler Mount
Engine Bolt Kit
Dynafocal rubber mounts
Aren't these parts included in the Firewall Forward Kit?

Thanks,

I did not purchase the fwf kit.

That flange is NOT included in the baffle kit, though.

It is, however, the first step in the baffle instructions!

None I could find. I planned to purchase this cooler before finding one used for 5 hours. I spoke to pacific coolers, who make that unit, and they claim it is compatible and better, in their opinion, than the niagra.

I am rolling the dice on the 13 row being adequate. I fabricated a turning vane (copied from a production add on) to help turn the air into the upper portion of the cooler. The cooler mount is a poor design that will leave a good portion of the air in turbulence at the bottom choke point and starve the upper half of the cooler. It is my speculation this is the reason that many suffer from high oil temps with the 13 row.

I put the upsized 07 cooler on a slightly modified stock mount and have never had high oil temp issues in Arizona. In fact, after a couple of winters I had to install a butterfly baffle just to be able to keep the oil temp in the green in cruise.

Myron,

Can you point me to where I can investigate an upsized cooler. Model numbers, etc. would help, as would some more description of your mods to the stock mount. Thanks in advance.

Default Airflow Systems 20007X

I used the 20007X...only minor mods required to install on the stock mount.

Here is the Data sheet:

Sure. I got the plus sized oil cooler here. Specifically the 2007x

https://www.airflow-systems.com/cate...t-oil-coolers/

The upsized one is slightly taller than the standard. The bracket is easily modified by removing some of the faceplate at the top where the regular size nut plates go to make the opening larger to take full advantage of the larger surface area of the cooler itself, and then affixing a piece of angle stock on top to position the new nut plates.
Hard to explain but it should become immediately evident to you when you mate the two together.

I can send pix in a couple of days if needed.

Default Air Flow Systems Oil Cooler

Hi Mike,

The oil cooler Myron is referring to is from Air Flow Systems,the same people who make the Air-Con for the RV-10 etc.

The 2007X fits with only minor mods to the stock oil cooler mount.The instructions that come with it explain all.

Iíll post some photos when I get home .
