BPD oil cooler

Question for BPD oil cooler installations, please. Have you had any issue with oil temp when sitting in traffic, in summer, for extended periods of time. I am not sure, but from the picture on their website, it looks like the cooler sits below the radiator and out of the flowpath of air being pulled in by the fan. Thanks in advance. Roger

Nope. No problems whatsoever. It's when the engine is working hard that you have higher EOT's. Idling and just cruising through town, my EOT's are around 190*. In addition, lower EGT's mean lower EOT's since we have oil squirters on the bottom of our pistons to help keep them cool.

Thanks Shawn,
Did you do the bumper mount of the condensor mount? If the condensor mount, did you change to the GM orifice tube on your A/C?

Hi Roger,
I went with the condensor mount and didn't change anything on the AC. Despite towing in the hot AZ summers, my AC is still nice and cold.

BPD will try to steer you to the condensor mount as they sell way more of those and if you want to add the cold weather kit it only works with the condensor mount. The Condensor mounted oil cooler mounts behind the condensor so there is no impact on the AC. The Chevy orifice is only needed with the bumper mount setup. I was thinking bumper mount but Ken at BPD talked me out of it.

So if sitting in traffic and the fan kicks on it is in the air path from the fan.
