Instead of simply replacing the factory
oil cooler with a slightly larger core, AR leaves the factory setup
(if so equipped) intact and add a second core behind the kidney

VAC Tech's Pro Tips:
This cooler configuration is nicely laid out as it does not
interfere with existing brake ducting, or adding brake ducts to

additional engine oil heat issues. While this cooler has had good
results on 6 speed 335s, we recommend dual oil coolers for
regularly tracked automatic models as they can have oil cooling
issues that necessitate additional area, and blocking of the brake
duct area to control temperature may be the required solution.
