Oil Cooler in the TRASH?

Can I just take the oil cooler out and splice the lines ( oil and coolant) back together and put a oil cooler and filter on the front of the truck?

I don't understand Why you need to but those if you can just "splice" the lines together and put in a filter and cooler in another spot. I already have a oil cooler on the truck I would just have to put in a remote filter. Then toss the oil cooler and filter assembly.

No you cant just splice oil and coolant lines and eliminate the oem oil cooler. It just isn't that simple.

Bullet proof makes a manifold that replaces the factory oil cooler assembly. It then has the connections for oil lines. You can purchase the manifold for $700+ or the whole kit for like $1,800. What you are trying to do is not possible without the manifold. $$$$$$

This is what you have when you take the oil cooler out.


And this is what you need to run lines to the front.


Clear now?

I need a blown motor to tear down so I don't have to experiment on mine.

It's not that simple. Every last one of us will tell you that.

The coolant comes from passages on the front of the block that pass into the oil cooler body. They are sealed flat sandwiched connections and I don't even remember just how many different oil passages there were under there that deliver the oil to all the appropriate circuits before dumping it into the reservoir that Mitch posted a picture of. That is why only a billet CNC machined replacement is the only possible way of re-inventing the wheel.

Do a little research and study some pictures, my advice since you're not understanding where we are coming from means you probably haven't been this far in to your engine as most of us have, you shouldn't attempt this experiment.
