Oil Cooler Help Please !!!

Hey FF:

Ok.... So I'm basically done with my turbo build. This is literally the stupidest thing but very important last step I have to do and can't because I have no reference to go off of.

I can not remember where the oil cooler hoses run to.... Now with that said I need someone to please do me the favor of crawling under there car where the oil filter is and look to the coolant lines that run off of them.

Now there are 3 hose plugs on the firewall right across from the oil filter... 2 are for the heater core and the other one I'm not sure. Please when you look at the oil filter tell me exactly which side runs to which port and where the other 2 ports on the firewall run.

I know that one of the ports runs to the front black coolant tube right above the radiator, but where do the other two ports on the fire wall run to?


Also please include which port your referring to.... I.e top, middle, or bottom.


Thanks a bunch guys, and I'm sorry for the stupidity :(


Anthony

IIRC,
One line on the cooler will come from the outlet of the heater core.
The other will go directly to the black guy.

Both the oil cooler and the heater core are omnidirectional.


So, you've go the line from the back of the water outlet going to the heater core, it comes out of the heater core and goes to the oil cooler, from the oil cooler it goes to the black guy.


Doesn't sound like much of an oil cooler now does it?
Because it's not really. It's designed more to keep consistent oil temps and warm the oil when the car is cold quicker.

But which ports on the fire wall are used for which? Because there are three ports and only two are used?

So you have one short hose from the oil cooler to the fire wall(Top/middle/bottom?).
Then we have the long tube from the back of the Tstat housing to the firewall(Top/middle/bottom?).
And lastly we have a long coolant hose running from the coolant black tube to the other port on the oil cooler?


I just want to make sure because earlier someone was telling me that the back of the tstat housing goes to the firewall and the long tube from the black thing goes to the oil cooler.....?????

Hence my confusion, I just want to make sure everything is good to go so I can start data logging and breaking in the new stuff without a problem arising while driving.

Thanks in advance,


Anthony
