Hi Kurtiss,Due to Dean’s unfortunate engine oiling issues, I decided to remove the stock coolant/oil heat exchanger and install the Ford Performance remote oil cooler adapter (P/N M-6881-M50A) and a Setrab series 6 cooler and Hamburger’s 3347 remote oil filter (all with -12 AN fittings). The oil cooler aligns well with the side scoop.
I will add the oil lines after the exhaust system has been built.

Thanks for the info Kurtiss.Hi Joel,
My decision was based on Ford Performance’s oil flow requirement. In 2015, Ford Performance changed their engine oil line size recommendation on the Coyote engines from a -10 to -12. As you know, a -12 (3/4”) oil line is BIG.
Dean’s engine seized after a dyno run and Ford said it was due to lack of oil flow. I purchased a 2017 Coyote Aluminator crate engine. After I removed the stock oil filter, cooler and adapter, I noticed the oil passages in the adapter assembly were small or restrictive due to poor machining. That’s when I decided to go with a remote oil cooler and filter.
I’m not familiar with the LT4 and the stock oil cooler may work just fine.
Hope this helps,
Kurtiss thanks for the reply. I’m gonna send you a private message right now.Hi Jim & Paul,
I live in Palmdale (north of LA). You're both welcome to visit my build and see the car firsthand.
The Type 65 Daytona coupe is a beautiful car. I have been to the Factory Five gatherings at Huntington Beach and the cars are really nice. The build difference is the FF tubular space frames/sheetmetal verses the Superlite aluminum semi-monocoque chassis with billet suspension components. Superlite chassis are very strong, light and stiff. Also, I have heard that the RCR/Superlite fiberglass bodies are superior in mold, fit and finish. The GT-R is a large car (80" wide and 180" overall length). Lots of room to put things and fairly roomy inside.

Would love to see your car Kurtiss. I’ll try and send a private message as well.Kurtiss thanks for the reply. I’m gonna send you a private message right now.
