That is the closed position, it opens to send oil to the cooler when it gets to temp. I heated water to check things out, it opens a lot .

I understand that, but the oil has to bypass behind the thermostat to get to the passage on the other side and into the filter. The picture makes it look like that passage is very small with the thermostat closed. I didn't know if it was as small as it looks in the pictures or if it is just the camera angle.

The pic of the mocal is how I received it from them. I also got the prices to go to the -12 lines from them when I ordered it.
The other is the one super bee sells on here.

I have one to and kinda thought the same thing but on a closer look it does not completely block off the oil cooler so there is still a little flow to the cooler when closed.

Will the LBZ trans cooler flow enough to work as a oil cooler?

The gains would be minimal imo, for all the work of having hoses made and a sammich plate installed for only a few hundo more you could have a nice fluidyne cooler

I think the transmission God said the GM trans coolers are too restrictive. Would not want to risk starving the engine for oil.

Now you could probably get one of his trans coolers and use it.

I used a stock 6 speed trans cooler as an engine cooler on my old samurai engine. I wouldn’t use it on our trucks.
