New 13 row oil cooler

Spoiler restricting flow to sump , 998 is pushed hard on motorways/ a roads keeping up with the 1275’s in the ‘club’
Anticipating higher temps water/ oil when NOS eventually completed.
Not running a thermostat as mini only comes out spring to autumn dry days.


Placed in situ to see what brackets I need to make ( should be fairly straightforward ) and will probably rubber mount to bodywork. Pipe work also looks like it’s not going to be too obtrusive.

Will probably take off cold air feed pipe and fit a stainless grille.... or not ? As pipe still fits behind cooler and only covers a small fraction ( would have warmer air blowing into cabin 🤔)

Mounted ( pic doesn’t show 2 bottom mounts - altogether 3 points, so it’s not going anywhere)

Air Feed pipe sits tight on so if I reinstate I will trim it back

Thank you


Mostly in, have decided to keep air intake pipe and trim it down ( covers wiring I
On inside of wing) - angled oil pipes so will curve around air intake.

Looks neat - not too much piping

All cut , connected and back in ... may still delete it and fit a grille on inner wing.

Just need to fill with oil ..... I suppose I should have a crack at leaking drive shaft oil seals at this point ( prior to oil going in) .... but can I be bothered? - have got service and big suspension job to do on 40

Tape on steering wheel ( had to be green )
