lol I've actually been considering changing turbos and just de tuning it. The k04's run hot, I don't really want to add a lot more power because I don't want to build an engine and I don't think it's really needed. I do want a turbo that runs cooler though.

I hope with the addition of the oil cooler I won't see that problem but I'm a bit skeptical still.

I had an external oil cooler on a turbo ac vw and it kept temps around 180-190. I also had a adjustable thermostat on it that would kick on a dedicated electric fan. I have one in the garage for the gti but havent made it that far yet, is the only way to plumb it with filter adapter?
I would think sandwich it between rad and front clip so fans can draw air through it vs depending on moving air current? Anyone have data on this setup without using a fan?
