Wondering how efficient our OEM oil cooler is compared to aftermarket ones. What brand/style is most beneficial to a fully built motor. Suggestions and expieriences will be appreciated thanks.
This is for a fresh built stage 4 Pampena motor. I wouldnt put on a used oem on a fresh build. Thats why I'm gaging info/experience to understand what would be best oem or aftermarket. .I mean... 30-year-old design compared to newer stacked-plate styles 🤷♂️
Drop in the bucket with a new engine... should have been done from the beginning unless you asking for later.

Thanks for the input. Was going to pull the trigger on that cxracing setup a long while back. But lack of good feedback made me hold off.I'd stay away from CX racing OC's. I am thinking that is "partially" to blame for my spun bearing. Setrab is the way to go or OEM with updated lines.
Just my $0.02.
At this point, it is all subjective without info or data... hell, Chris from Ninja Performance uses an OEM cooler...This is for a fresh built stage 4 Pampena motor.

Thanks for your input. It was not really a matter of having someone pin pointing exact what i need. It was more a matter what people are using that works really well with there set up. Hence "thoughts and suggestions on a built motor using oem oil cooler vs aftermarket". My goal is shooting for 700a whp. I have all the supporting mods. You name it. I got it. My point in this whole thread is to gather some info from others on brands or experiences. If you dont have that kinda info 😎cool.. if you do then im all eyes. Im no expert mechanic nor do I have oil cooling down to a science. (Hot oil moves through tubes/coils the fins/plates attached aid in the process of cooling depending on location of supplied air.) Thats pretty simple. Im not here to stir a debate nor get actual non productive info. Just really want to understand best brands/set up. (Kinda like the one posted in your recent instagram post with the Setrab) hell pointing out that post alone would have helped more than your last 2 responses in this thread.. its like you dont like me or something.At this point, it is all subjective without info or data... hell, Chris from Ninja Performance uses an OEM cooler...

In my signature.What mods you got? Sorry for the lack of info on my part. My original question was referring to a (freshly) fully built motor.
Thats awesome how well the oem is doing with your setup. Thanks a bunch for your input. And sorry I failed to check your sig before asking for mod list.In my signature.

If I had the time, money and doing my engine again I might change it and if it looks better why not. I was just commenting because I have not had any issue with overheating.
