      Comments about Imperial Econo-Kool® Engine Oil Cooler:

      Put in 67 Firebird with 400 ci engine that had been running hot. The cooler works great. Water temps are down just at 20 degrees. I did have to have one part machined down. The standard kit didn't fit exactly. I had to cut off about 3/16" off the holding bolt. Local machine shop was required. This added [$] to cost.

          A:

          I recommend visiting your local Advance Auto Parts store and purchasing Haynes Repair Manual. The book will provide you with installation of the Enginge Oil Cooler for your specific vehicle. It will also direct you step by step with detailed instructions on the replacement process for any part on your vehicle. Also, on our website we have a feature called "Just Answer” link, where we have ASE Certified Technicians who would be more than happy to answer your questions regarding this matter.
