Happy Halloween. As I have reviewed this entire thread from the beginning, it appears that I usually post a project update on Halloween, so I'll keep the trend going.
Lately, I've been working on the oil lines that go to the remote filter and standalone oil cooler. When I initially built this up, I went the budget route with the house brands of hose, AN fittings, and cooler from Summit Racing. I've had chronic oil seeping and misting from the interconnects and cooler, so I decided to upgrade everything. I am now using genuine Aeroquip for the connectors, and a larger Swedish-made Setrab oil cooler. They are the oil cooler suppliers to most high-end and exotic cars. The improved quality of these parts is palpable. You could hand these pieces to your grandmother, and even she would know that they are good things.
The old oil cooler was made in Canada, and the new one is made in Sweden. It's funny how these cold weather countries are the experts and oil cooling. I would've expected these products to come out of Arizona, Egypt, or some other such place that is hotter than hell.
