I'd say yes. Keeps from doing damage to your motor.Sorry for the dumb question. I am prepping a King of the Hammers rig for V2R. I plan on plenty of cooling and have good trans cooling. Do I need to complicate this thing with an oil cooler?
347 Ford motor, 3800# race ready.
I switched to that Fluidyne 15" x 15" cooler and when I did my oil temp was reduced by over 20 degrees. It's a little noisy, but who cares---at least if I can hear it, I know the fan on it is going. I mounted it real close to my head, so that's my fault. I have to agree that Fluidyne worked really good for me.Run a cooler. Fluidyne makes a 15"x15" that is shrouded and a fan mounted. Summit sells them for about $470. The money spent will save your motor.
