So clean to look at...
I might be biased but I'm a fan of the black. It makes everything look tidy and simple and doesn't take attention away from the engine/turbo. And the bonus is that it hides dirt really well compared to other colours (if it's satin black).
looks like the funs begun. Your g/sec keeps climbing like mine used to. I dont know whats up with this EJ206, it runs some much different than my old ones. gets to 300ish g/sec early and just stays flat after that
Probably good seals before they start to gap and then the head gaskets start wearing out...
Started from the beginning and subbing here to keep reading! Loving it so far and taking some ideas here and there, nice work!
:lol: I’m always too angry after this happens to stop right away, so I’m not even sure if they die or not. I’m usually in disbelief for a minute, just hoping it’s a bad dream before I pull over to check the damages. I’ve looped back around a few minutes later and they’re always gone.Why do none of you post the freezer full of meat you get from these deer!
Personally I am not a fan of the OEM Oil Cooler (Warmer). I personally opted to run a Cast Impeller 2 port Water pump on my build. 21111AA250 is the part number for the 2 port, cast impeller version. The cast impeller is supposed to reduce cavitation.Thoughts on oil cooler for the built motor?
Do I spend the money on a brand new oem cooler, hardline/hoses?.....or just get an aftermarket cooler that would work better and possibly be cheaper?
Then again, I’d need to buy a n/a waterpump, unless I just plugged the extra ports or modified it like some people have. I already have a brand new turbo water pump if I go the oem cooler route.
Or....Is it possible to re-use the cooler off my current ej205 since it’s still running good? I know you can’t re-use a cooler from a blown up engine, but one from a running engine should be ok right?
Thanks for the input. Besides the oil warmer thing, I also hate how low the oil filter hangs with the oem cooler on there.Personally I am not a fan of the OEM Oil Cooler (Warmer).

The reason I don't like the OEM set-up is that it is really only useful in warming up the oil on cold starts and has no benefit in keep the oil cool once the engine has reached operating temp. An external oil cooler is far more beneficial. Just be sure that if you do use an external cooler that you utilize a thermostatically controlled system so the oil only runs through the cooler once it reaches a certain temp.
