The caprice I have currently has the oil cooler removed and a block off plate installed. The original owner installed the G8 headers, which didn’t have the room for it. I currently have a set of the proper PPV Kooks long tubes for the car, 1 7/8” with the accommodating bend for the cooler. I also have the cooler from a previous Caprice. How much of a difference does the factory cooler make on engine oil temps and is it worth re-installing? All I need to get is the gaskets and she’s ready to go on. I’m looking to do a coolant flush on the car and want to get my ducks in a row before I start working on the cooling system. I have the car set up with a 180 degree thermostat and the fans have been tuned for lower temps. Should I go with a 160 degree or is the 180 good enough? Is there a hi flow water pump for the motor?
